Shocking. The way each soul is divided into layers explicitly detailed is astonishing. While witnessing these rough world corners, one naturally arrives to the conclusion that black-and-white photography was often used by movie-makers for their own advantage in order to "obscure" some of the most disturbing external manifestations of our intrinsic malevolence. Truly one of the best Indian films.

Not a summary available here, huh (also note the release year was 1965, not 2011)? A brother and his young sister in or near Calcutta, following the 1947 Partition of India, essentially adopt a boy after his mother was taken away. It's not difficult to figure out where things will progress in that regard story-wise, but there are some dark turns.

This is a magical film, knowing how to portray human emotions without overplaying them, knowing how to meld the personal and the political until it becomes real. The dialogue can at times be direct to the point of abrupt in terms of getting information across, but it's so rare and the rest of the film so heartfelt that this small problem melts away.

WEB. Un modelo a seguir de tragedia trabajada con complejidad, arte y un genuino sentido de prdida. Una obra maestra. / A model to follow of a tragedy wrought with complexity, art and a genuine sense of loss. A masterpiece.

Truly an outstanding film. It deals with the India/Bangladesh division, but also touches on modern ambition and caste prejudice, as these factors come together to create a rather Shakespearan tragedy. Again, the use of sound and music is astonishing, often blending from one scene to the next, occuring as an audio flashback, or somehow heightened or distorted. And the songs are quite beautiful, as is the cinematography. Besides a little clunky acting, I can't find anything to complain about.

truly astonishing, way ahead of its time, beautiful songs and what a climax!
