Film: Pather Panchali

028 - Pather Panchali (1955)

Pather Panchali, directed by Satyajit Ray, is a 1955 Bengali drama film based on the Bibhutibhushan Bandopadhyay’s novel of the same name. The film is followed by two sequels, Aparajito and then Apur Sansar, in the highly acclaimed ‘Apu Trilogy’, which is often considered to be one of the greatest film trilogies of all time. The first part, Pather Panchali, tells the delicate touching story of Apu’s early impoverish childhood life, and the difficult circumstances his family faces as he grows up. They don’t make many films like this anymore.
