Gangacharan is the new Brahmin of a village, where he assumes various duties: teaching, organizing religious events, and trying to prevent epidemics. But in that year 1943, war is raging (as reminded by the planes occasionally heard flying over the countryside), and a major famine is under way. As food shortages reach catastrophic proportions, Gangacharan attempts to preserve his privileged situation, while his generous wife, Ananga, conversely tries to help and support the community.

(jp) wrote: French version of My Fair Lady.Caron and Jourdan are superb. Chevalier is charming. I'm Glad I''m Not Young Anymore is a beautiful song. And there are two glorious sequences in which Gaston walks/sings through the gardens of Paris falling in love with Gigi.The first hour could have been edited after the brittleness and general horribleness of Parisian society had been established. Of course, the attitudes of the time were appalling (you couldn't joke about attempted suicide today) and distinguishing between whether someone is ordinary-common or coarse-common (as Gaston and Gigi do on their first outing) is hard to watch. I know it's a piece of confection and hopefully by the end those attitudes are repudiated, but nothing is said. I guess by Gaston softening towards Gigi they also leave behind the attitudes of the "society" in which neither had felt comfortable - Gaston was always bored and Gigi was a bit of a tomboy and rebel.

(kr) wrote: WOW...What a great movie lead by the great Nicolas Cage. Every second of this is just great fun and had to have been a blast to make because all of the cast looks like they are having a great time and with good reason. I can watch this one on repeat, which I have done, a few times. LOL, must see for everyone
