Directed by Satyajit Ray
Ray's last great
masterpiece is the provocative tale of Manmohan, a world traveler who returns to Calcutta
after 35 years to visit his niece, Anila. Anila's suspicious husband believes the
long-lost uncle to be an imposter who has come to claim an inheritance. As Manmohan's
identity is slowly revealed, Anila and her husband must examine their own identities in
relation to traditional values and modern civilization. Bengali with English subtitles.
"A tour-de-force as the film maestro fathoms his characters psychologically and
the camera is wielded like a conductor's baton as Agantuk
strikes chords deep in the mind
a dream of a performance!" (The Times). Color. 121 minutes.
