Kanchenjunga, film directed by Satyajit Ray


Directed by Satyajit Ray


A wealthy family from Calcutta is on the last day of their vacation in Darjeeling, a hill station at the foot of Mount Kanchenjungha, the second highest peak of the Himalayas. Until now, they have been unable to catch a glimpse of the peak Kanchenjungha.The family members are dominated by the father, Indranath (Chhabi Biswas), an industrialist. He wants his daughter to marry a man of his choice and hopes that the man will propose if they are left together alone for some time. Several long walks and long conversations form the main body of the film. The real-time drama unfolds the daughter's feelings about her father's idea, and the negative reactions to this by her mother and others. By accident, she meets an outsider, Ashoke, a young student who has refused a job offer from Indranath. Though nothing develops between them, his presence coupled with the setting of mountains and the failure of her sister's marriage, prompt her to reject the proposed suitor. At the end of his walk, the industrialist arrives at a rendezvous point, expecting to meet his family and the successful suitor. None of them is present to greet him. As the mist clears, the peak of Kanchenjungha is revealed in its full glory. But Indranath is too pre-occupied to admire it.Une riche famille de Calcutta est le dernier jour de leurs vacances à Darjeeling, une station de colline, au pied du montKanchenjungha, le deuxième plus haut sommet de l'Himalaya.Jusqu'à présent, ils ont été incapables d'apercevoir des membres du pic de la famille Kanchenjungha.The sont dominéespar le père, Indranath (Chhabi Biswas), un industriel. Il veut que sa fille à épouser un homme de son choix et espère quel'homme va proposer, si elles sont laissées ainsi seul pourquelque temps. Plusieurs longues promenades et de longues conversations forment le corps principal du film. Le drame se déroule en temps réel les sentiments de la fille à propos idée de son père, et les réactions négatives à ce que sa mère et d'autres. Par accident, elle rencontre un étranger, Ashoke, un jeune étudiant qui a refusé une offre d'emploi d'Indranath. Bien que rien ne se développe entre eux, sa présence couplée avec la mise de montagnes et de l'échec du mariage de sa sœur,l'incitent à rejeter le prétendant proposé. A la fin de sa promenade, l'industriel arrive à un point de rendez-vous, en attendant de rencontrer sa famille et le prétendant de succès.Aucun d'eux n'est présent pour l'accueillir. Comme le brouillard se lève, le pic de Kanchenjungha se révèle dans toute sa splendeur. Mais Indranath est trop préoccupé pour l'admirer.
