Pather Panchali


(Satyajit Ray, 1955).
Three years in the making, the masterpiece that launched Satyajit Ray’s career tells a story, but it’s less a linear narrative than a series of rhyming incidents set in the cruel Eden of a Bengali village. Meals are prepared, entertainers come to town, the wind moves in the trees, people die—the movie is a serene heart breaker.
