Satyajit Ray's debut movie (rather auspicious, to say the least) is a delicate balance between cultural documentation of rural India and lyrical evocation of the world's infinite amazements — the forest, rainfall, trains, death — as seen through the eyes of children. It put India on the map of international cinema. 1955.
