The Stranger (Agantuk) - (Mr Bongo Films) (1991) [DVD] (DVD);The Stranger (Agantuk) is a drama about a man who suddenly interrupts the lives of a family. A woman receives a letter from her uncle that left India when she was a small child. As 35 years have passed, it comes as quite a surprise that he now wants to see her and her family. Her husband is suspicious that he may be an imposter or have ulterior motives in wanting to see them. Her son is more trusting and accepts him as his great uncle and is spellbound by the stories of his travels.;Although the story is simple, it has a lot of suspense. The family is put into a strange and difficult place as they treat someone they don't know as honored guest. Their own suspicions do not serve them well as it makes them uncertain of who he is. The stranger is philosophical, worldly, and claims to have experiences that are nearly unbelievable. To a degree, the stranger doesn't help settle their doubts with firm evidence or even conviction that he is really her uncle. He merely tells them that they will believe he is or is not their uncle on their own.;Agantuk is Satyajit Ray's last film, it has everything one would expect of this great director and is sure to please his fans. Satyajit Ray is a remarkable Bengali director that has the talent to capture one's attention and make one totally absorbed in the world he presents. Although I have never been disappointed by any of his movies, I have to say that The Stranger is one of my favorite films by Satyajit Ray.
