One of Indian master filmmaker Satyajit Ray's most completely realized human portraits, the first time he worked in color, and a film with an interesting structure: Ray juxtaposes the India of the valleys with the India of the mountain hill stations to interesting symbolic effect.

Wealthy industrialist Indranath Choudhuri (Biswas) and his family vacation in Darjeeling. The family's problems are brought out into the open and some attempt is made at solving them. The positions of the characters emerge on circling terraces on the hillside during a strictly formalized series of

walks that soon take on a subtle musical structure. Evident throughout is the conflict between the old and the young, ancient customs and modern life.
