    What a beautiful film. spoiler This deserves a far better print and subtitles than those on the DVD available commercially in North America. See KG for vastly better quality on both fronts. 7 years 11 months ago

    If the western films sometimes show the birth of society within a small city, Ray shows how some of these cities, or their inhabitants, grow in bigger cities.
