Audience Reviews for Calcutta
Malle's documentary focuses on appalling living conditions and social unrest in Calcutta. Having seen umpteen Ray and Ghatak movies, little of this was new to me, but it was still interesting (and quite depressing). But the French are sometimes insufferably eager to point fingers. I'm not one of these "freedom fries" Americans that hates the French. But really, don't they have enough colonial problems in their own past that they don't have to go "tsk tsk"-ing the English over India?
