Using an almost documentary-style approach, Satyajit Ray crafts an emotional piece about everyday Indian life. The film starts with some humorous touches, but, towards the second half, tragedy reveals a more humble and poignant piece about coping with difficult circumstances. The final ten minutes or so are brilliant.

Powerful film of the master Ray. Part of the neorrealist movement. The "trilogy of life" begins with Apu, living in a very poor India, but sorounded by emotions and feelings that will marke him until the end of his life. One of the best performances given by a child, probably the best ever. And technically a masterpiece that should watch everyone that actually loves cinema.
