MFA Cinema India: The Servant's Shirt
The Servantís Shirt by Mani Kaul (Naukar Ki Kameez, The Netherlands/India 1999, 105 min.). Both chatty and absurd, The Servantís Shirt follows Santu, a lower-middle-class junior clerk in a provincial government office, as he struggles to keep from slipping down the social ladder. Santu and his wife attempt to maintain their sanity and social standing while dealing with a host of small-town characters, including his alcoholic supervisor, a senile peon, their phlegmatic landlord and doctor, the doctorís wife who always wants help with her domestic chores, and Santuís administrative chief who needs a new servant. Deadpan verbal sparring is at the heart of this witty and compelling narrative film by one of Indiaís leading experimental filmmakers. In Hindi with English subtitles.
