Song of the little roadDVD - 2003 | Bengali
A poor Bengali family survives in a village but wider horizons tempt the father. The protection of family members' reputations, the relationship of the family group to an elderly 'aunt', and first confrontations with death contribute to the early development of the boy Apu. His father's dreams prevail over the objections of his mother so that at the end of the film the family moves to the big city of Benares. Apu's experiences are followed in the second film of the trilogy: Aparajito" and his growth to early manhood in the final film "Apur Sansar."
