  3. mubianer's rating of the film The Chess Players

    Favourite moment: The hiding under the bed scene. The personal and the political.

  4. rkpatani's rating of the film The Chess Players

    meh (didnt really finish it though)

  5. msmichel's rating of the film The Chess Players

    Ray was a master of both the pen and directorial vision well evident in this mid-period feature. The film is a pretty black satire of the caste system, British colonialism and privilege. Two men remain oblivious as their marriages, their way of life and their country slip away from them. A wry and powerful political satire that becomes mesmerizing as it moves on featuring top performances from its full cast.

    Every Country has a master storyteller, and Satyajit Ray is India's master of classical storytelling.

    "If we can not cope with our wives... how can we cope with the British army?" An eloquent story by the great Satyajit Ray.
