The concluding part of “The Apu Trilogy” deals with Apu’s adulthood and the challenges of living in the city in poverty. Ultimately a love story, the film chronicles his serendipitous marriage, the birth of his son, the tragic disillusionment he faces, and his eventual regeneration through the love of his son. “The great, sad, gentle sweep remains in the mind of the moviegoer as a promise of what film can be.”—Roger Ebert.
