Winning the Sutherland Trophy at the London Film Festival, this final instalment of the Apu Trilogy sees Apu set out to become a writer and a husband. Soumitra Chatterjee features in his first role for Ray and is joined by a teenage Sharmila Tagore; both give moving performances which traverse love and grief. Apu Sansar is a deeply observed and highly accomplished film, with music, again, by the formidable Ravi Shankar.
