Wonder and the Life of Philosophy in Modern Society

Wonder and the Life of Philosophy in Modern Society

Postby avisolo on Sat Dec 06, 2003 10:10 am

This remarkable film is in many ways a self portrait of Satyajit Ray because he was none other than an anthropologist and philosopher in the true sense of playful, childlike wonder. This is the the story of how how a life of curiousity and wonder have to survive in this cruel and foolish world which judges everything in materialistic terms.
The philosopher is always and everywhere a stranger,though full of joy, simplicity and wonder at Being which is fervently demonstrated in the 'cosmic magician' sequence. Only those with the child in them alive will understand!

I love the place in Agantuk where Bablu tells his 'Chot-dadu' that his friends are coming to see him.

All the grown ups are pretending that their frinds are coming for all sorts of reasons and here's this guy who just, well, speaks the truth for a change ! Classic .

Utpal Dutt was simply mesmerizing during his career......even here, he excels as Manmohan.
