Charulata

About

India in the 1880s. Chatterjee is the neglected wife of a newspaper proprietor. She seeks the company of her writer brother-in-law for companionship, and soon their feelings risk turning into something more than just friendship. Masterfully told by Satyajit Ray - infuriatingly slow to some, exquisitely exciting to others - the story is in turns profoundly moving as well as surprisingly fresh and witty.

In a nutshell

Comparable to a film by Eric Rohmer or a play by Anton Chekov, Charulata is the work of one of cinema's great humanists with no small cinematic skill to boot.
