With 26 films to his credit and numerous international prizes,
Satyajit Ray is India's most recognized filmmaker--yet, no extended
study of his films has previouly been published in English in the
West. Ben Nyce examines each of Ray's films in close detail and
provides a cinematic examination of his unique style. Nyce explores
Ray's career chronologically to best chart his stylistic
development as a filmaker. Each chapter considers one film and how
it expressed the particular quality of rhythm and mood which
characterizes his work. Narrative synopses are first presented, and
the opinions of his critics are continually noted and discussed.
Included are studies of the following well known films: "Pather
Panchali," "Aparajito," "Apur Sanar" ("The Apu Trilogy"),
"Jalsagha"r ("The Music Room"), "Ashani Sanket" ("Distant
Thunder"), and "Ghare-Baire" ("The Home and the World").
