Satyajit Ray Details


One of the most internationally-recognized directors, Satyajit Ray is interviewed extensively in this documentary on his life and work. Clips are shown from his movies (always filmed in the Bengali dialect for authenticity), as Ray remembers how he developed his own vision of filmmaking, how he handled the camera, and how his widowed mother's encouragement to get an education helped him to realize what he could and could not do with his life. Barely back on his feet from a 1984 heart attack, Ray is shown smoking a cigar at a window with the cityscape of Calcutta beyond. He would die of respiratory and heart failure in 1992. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
