  1. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film The Expedition

  2. Brett Cowie's rating of the film The Expedition

    An excellent film. Brilliantly acted, paced, shot, scored, and told. My first time watching a film by Satyajit Ray and certainly want to watch more of his films.

  3. Ashley Spendlove's rating of the film The Expedition

    There's something so intelligent and special about Ray's narrative style: the way he allows the relationships to breathe on the screen and the subtlety with which the motives and actions of the individuals are shown to be driven by the social context. In this respect he is a genuinely modern filmmaker. Oh, and it looks and sounds great as well.

  4. raggiodisole's rating of the film The Expedition

    Splendid, a fully realised, well shot and sharply observed study of the nature on man when faced with class, race, greed, corruption and temptation,

  5. ManWithNoName47's rating of the film The Expedition

    A hugely successful introduction to both Indian cinema and the great Satyajit Ray. a poignant, important exploration of power, prejudice, and love in 1960s India.

  6. Peter Lewis's rating of the film The Expedition

    Wonderful stuff for a cold wet sunday afternoon. The movement between narrative and ideas is smooth as silk and beautifully acted too.

  7. ruthlornaadele's rating of the film The Expedition

    this is a gorgeous piece of film. the light and framing, just beautiful.

  8. P Teddy Sawyer's rating of the film The Expedition

    The Three Aristotilean virtues: Courage, Honesty, and Justice

  9. guillaume's rating of the film The Expedition

    Another film jewel from Ray. More!

  10. Felicity Green's rating of the film The Expedition

    A beautiful morality tale that isn't moralistic, but concerned with the question of what is a good life. A taxi driver of warrior-caste descent is tempted into a life of crime, but confronted with the goodness in those around him... Cinematographically superb as ever, but the nighttime driving shots particularly stand out

  11. AnnaMaryRyder's rating of the film The Expedition

  12. Peter Blegvad's rating of the film The Expedition

  13. goulton green's rating of the film The Expedition

    Soulful masterpiece. Deeply moving. 0:53:38, and another one with them two, one next to another and their pendants talking.

  14. Sayantani Ghosh's rating of the film The Expedition

    Gyanesh Mukherjee is just so adorable as the faithful friend in Abhijan.

  15. Misho's rating of the film The Expedition

  16. Sudipto Basu's rating of the film The Expedition

    One of Ray's most under-rated. Such an incisive document of class identity and the wish to climb up the social ladder.

  17. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Expedition

    Shot in superb landscapes, Satyajit Ray's ABHIJAN teeters between melodrama and social study. And it works. One learns a lot about Indian castes and religions between two car chases. A great surprise. Highly recommended. A DVD zone discovery.
