The Cloud-Capped Star
(Meghe Dhaka Tara)

by Ritwik GHATAK

cloud-capped-star1

“Barely has a woman in The Cloud-Capped Star moved into the foreground than the depth of field shows her the man she secretly loves in the company of another woman. Arrangements and ruptures, space is the source and centre of physical and sexual tensions, Ghatak is a filmmaker of desire and, like Mizoguchi, the violence of these desires. […] Each of Ghatak’s films is suddenly pierced by passionate aesthetic flashes that freeze and shatter as swiftly as they form.”

(Charles Tesson, Cahiers du cinéma no.343, January 1983, Festival des 3 Continents “Discovering Guru Dutt and Ritwik Ghatak!”)
