About the Film:

Time has not been kind to John Ford's Oscar winning classic. Often seen as the film that beat Orson Welles' Citizen Kane at the 1942 Oscars, people have forgotten that the film is a fine portrait of childhood, family, love and friendship in a Welsh mining village.  One can't help but see the similarities in Satyajit Ray's masterful Pather Panchali released 14 years later. Seen through the eyes of a small boy, both capture the rhythms of daily life, the ups and downs of a poor village family with its major heartaches and minor triumphs.
