Revisiting the master

Managed to catch Satyajit Ray's Apur Sansar, part III of the famous Apu trilogy - my first time as a grown up. And it doesn't take too much effort to understand why Ray is widely regarded as a master filmmaker. Simple and clean story telling, understated acting (Soumitra Chatterjee is amazing) and a realistic approach far ahead of anybody's times. I wont even attempt to review it here, I'm far too unworthy. I'll just say that I'm eager to watch the entire trilogy again. What a thrill!
