  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Adversary

    Portrait d'un individu sans cesse "de passage" sur fond acerbe de critique sociale et d'événements situationnels (guerre du Vietnam, attentat terroriste ethnique, vogue et vague du mouvement hippie) qui peut quelquefois déconcerter maints spectateurs, plus rompus chez Satyajit Ray à une traditionnelle narration classique et linéaire, aux thématiques intemporelles. www.cinefiches.com

  3. janh24's rating of the film The Adversary

    A very fine film indeed. Ray weaves a number of surrealist or magical elements effortlessly into this quasi-parabolic tale.

  4. raggiodisole's rating of the film The Adversary

    My first Ray film, and a beguiling slice of Magical Realism it is too. a singular worldview, chronicling the trials and tribulations of a young man. Well worth checking out

  5. Steven Dawson's rating of the film The Adversary

    I'm very glad I watched this, it was my first Satyajit Ray experience but now definitely not going to be my last. The story of a young educated man in Calcutta who is struggling to get a job and left depressed and lacking direction in life. Great characters, some brilliantly playful direction and full of political, personal and social themes which remain very relevant today.

  6. dmol's rating of the film The Adversary

    This is my first Ray and I'm looking forward to the next one. A dive into a visionary world through the troubles and pains of a familiar everyday portrait. Now, if only our mind could go where Ray's does on our next job interview..

  7. Pendar Gh's rating of the film The Adversary

    characters were well made, main character seemed to represented young desperate generation in search of a scarce job and the impact which the revolutionary mood of day had on him, good use of flashback through the film. it gave a sense of compassion towards the people in the movie and situation for a young person of such background in Calcutta

  8. sapta's rating of the film The Adversary

    Balurghat is the place I am originally from. It's such a surprise and a delight to hear its name in a Ray film even if it's portrayed in not so excellent terms. I wonder if Ray really went there for the shooting.

  9. Sudipto Basu's rating of the film The Adversary

    Siddhartha is the character that Ray most closely identified with. So do I. A bit of him and a bit of Travis Bickle. :P

  10. Brandon=andon=andon=andon's rating of the film The Adversary

    A film that truly depicts mundane day to day lives most people go through. We all look for something more to life, but most of us just don't know what that thing is. And when you only have two sides to chose from such as living a life in the working class and just going through the motions or becoming a radical revolutionary (as is depicted in the film) all you find is what you yourself truly wants out of life.
