The Apu Trilogy
SATYAJIT RAY, 1955-1959<
Song of the Little Road, The Unvanquished, The World of Apu
Kurosawa compared the unfamiliarity with Satyajit Ray’s work to not ever having seen the sun or the moon. The trilogy –there is a millimetric connection between all the visual details– narrates the determining moments of Apu’s life, from childhood to adulthood, but far from being a plot about dreams come true –Apu wants to be a writer–, Ray manages to make us wary about future plans that could lead to misfortune.
