The Adversary, Satyajit Ray (India, 1970)
Created amid the growing social unrest and political violence of India (and the world) post-1969, and specifically responding to Bengal’s armed Naxalite radical movement, The Adversary is Ray at his most openly political, yet also Ray at his most compassionate and even humorous. A young college graduate seeks employment (or at least respect) in Calcutta, “that nightmare city”, and finds neither. Indifferent to joining polite society, his younger brother chooses revolution instead.
