Pather Panchali (1955)
IMDB Ocena 8.3/10
With her always absent and emotionally unavailable Brahmin husband, Harihar, dreaming of recognition as a playwright and a better future, the impecunious mother-of-two, Sarbojaya, struggles to eke out an existence and put food on the table for her daughter, Durga, her son, Apu, and frail Aunt Indir. Living on the verge of poverty, at the dilapidated ancestral house in the heart of an untamed bamboo forest in 1910s rural Bengal, sometimes, it seems that poor Sarbojaya is fighting a losing battle, having to put up with Durga's shenanigans, Indir's idiosyncrasies, and the ridicule of their unsympathetic neighbours. And, as if that weren't enough, the unstoppable Indian monsoon is fast approaching, and Harihar, who is still looking for a job to support his family, is nowhere to be found. Now, defeated Sarbojaya has no other choice but wait and pray. But, is she prepared for what fate has in store for her?
