"Pather Panchali",a masterpiece directed by Satyajit Ray is NOT a film but an experience. Watched it on the Classic Movie channel this morning, and it is an absolute MUST for anyone interested in film making, acting or just enjoying a very memorable film. I had seen it many years ago, but could not remember the content exactly, except that it is the first of a trilogy about APU, a boy growing up in rural India in the middle of the last century. The 1950's! That does sound like so long ago...but the film and the story is ageless.
