Kanchenjungha, Satyajit Ray (India, 1962)
For the setting of his first film in color, Ray chose the scenic Himalayan hillside resort of Darjeeling, where the elite flee from the heat of Calcutta. Here, one family vacation turns into a family showdown, as a wealthy, Anglicized father tries to rule over his stifled wife, libertine son, unloved eldest daughter, and rebellious younger one. “Ray’s most creative and detailed look at contemporary India’s cross-cultures” (Albert Johnson).
