  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Home and the World

    Excellente adaptation du roman éponyme de Tagore que ce vingt-sixième long métrage du fameux metteur en scène qui, en filigrane d'une classique dramaturgie sentimentale, repose à nouveau l'essentielle et délicate problématique d'une Inde ancestrale confrontée aux discutables, voire fallacieuses valeurs occidentales... www.cinefiches.com

  2. João Eça's rating of the film The Home and the World

    A film doesn't need comparison to be judged. Indeed "Charulata" is similar and better. Yet, I will not forget several of this film's scenes or shots, as they share a psychological quality rare in any style of making cinema. Ray's abuse of zooms or voice-off reflects some indolence, but the lightning, the laconic use of sound, the direction of actors, the abstract nature of space or the humanity of all characters win.

    Done with 'Late Ray'. real time & relevant Issue, less essentials, more critiques. This late gemLegitimized Ray as ultimate observer.

  5. apexa's rating of the film The Home and the World

    Most well-made, greatly orchestrated, and complex of all of the Ray films I have seen.

  6. Lorna Singh's rating of the film The Home and the World

    Another great one from Satyajit Ray. To see how he ties in the political issues of 1907 India with the personal problems of a wealthy Bengali woman,doing so with compassion. Amazing cinematography.

  7. Graham Duncan Hill's rating of the film The Home and the World

    This is the first Satyajit Ray film I've gotten to see. This was a great film. It shows the difficult choices before a sheltered woman and that those who want to help may not actually be helping anything. A very tragic film.
