Bariwali - The Lady Of The House
The Lady of the House by Rituparno Ghosh (Bariwali,1999, 150 mins). A lonely middle-aged spinster, Banolata (Kiron Kher), is forced by circumstances to rent her family's sprawling home to a film crew. While this is a momentous event in Banolata's secluded life, for the director and film crew, she's just a useful contact with a house they need for their shoot. "[A] slowly paced, but ultimately extremely moving story... Kher gives an emotionally charged portrayal of the woman whose exploitation is as callous as it is casual" (Variety). Widely compared to Satyajit Ray's Charulata and The Music Room, this award-winning film by one of India's leading arthouse filmmakers has rarely been screened in the US. In Bengali with English subtitles.
