MUSIC ROOM, THE

[JALSAGHAR]
With THE MUSIC ROOM, Satyajit Ray brilliantly evokes the crumbling opulence of the world of a fallen aristocrat (the beloved actor Chhabi Biswas) desperately clinging to a fading way of life. His greatest joy is the music room in which he has hosted lavish concerts over the years — now a shadow of its former vivid self. An incandescent depiction of the clash between tradition and modernity, and a showcase for some of India's most popular musicians of the day, THE MUSIC ROOM is a defining work by the great Bengali filmmaker. (Note courtesy of Janus Films.) DIR/SCR/PROD Satyajit Ray, from a story by Tarashankar Banerjee. India, 1958, b&w, 95 min. In Bengali with English subtitles. NOT RATED
