The essentials

Making lists is an activity moviegoers are fond of. Every year, the same ritual: compilation of the ten best films, with comparative analyses, debates, heated discussions. But what about the ultimate list of the most outstanding films in the history of cinema? That is to say, those films that must be seen, those that have forever transformed the art of cinema, but also our way of seeing a culture, of understanding the world as well as our own lives? This program aims to tackle this challenge with nearly eighty films, produced between 1916 and 1960, while waiting for your lists!

Satyajit Ray

Satyajit Ray is an Indian Bengali director, writer and composer, born May 2, 1921 in Calcutta and died in the same city on April 23, 1992. For his film Pather Panchali, Ray receives an award in 1956 at the Cannes Film Festival, introducing the world to the Indian film industry. Ray's cinema is realistic; his early works are full of compassion and emotion; his later work is more politicized and sometimes cynical, but he still infuses it with his typical humor.
