The Holy Man

Saw Satyajit Ray’s #TheHolyMan (#Mahapurush). Inspired by Tartuffe, I take it. Polytheism, multi-lingualism, …

… and the vast knowledge shared by the comical villain & his cultured creator really bend Moliére’s old classic into interesting shapes.

#TheHolyMan. A film master, relaxing. All in fun, though the unmasking of the charlatan is fierce. Also/boy, does he know how to point & move & cut!
