Pather Panchali

In all honesty this was the least favorite of all movie screenings. I can see the similarities with Umberto D in that it is a film of the mundane, but I couldn’t enjoy this film as much as Umberto D. The lighting was very dark making it hard to focus on what was going on at times, although I can see why the director chose to do so, in order to give it that realistic view. But I felt that it was slow paced when it could have been cut a lot shorter. The movie started to pick up towards the end with the death of Durka, but even so I can’t say I enjoyed it.
