Devi (The Goddess) Reviews

Comparatively baroque and melodramatic in terms of its images and story, it manages to mount a lucid, finally very moving argument against the destructive nature of fanaticism and superstition.

A haunting experience, and should have been, coming from afar from a man born to make movies.

One of Satyajit Ray's greatest early films (1962), full of sensuality and ironic undertones.

It's a film that bears all the hallmarks of Ray's best work: gracefulness, exquisite pacing and composition, love for his characters and a deep regard for the power of silence to tell a story.
