The World of Apu

A beautiful film from India, circa 1959. It's the last part of the "Apu Trilogy" (along with Song of the Road and Unvanquished), but stood alone, and was completely gorgeous as art / cinematography (black and white) as well as its subject - India and the actors.

Hard to say much and not sound like a pretentious film snob, but we really loved it. Sadly, Netflix only has this 1/3 of the triology available; but hopefully the others will be available soon.

Directed by Satyajit Ray, and highly recommended!
