WFC Bangladesh: তিতাস একটি নদীর নাম

What a strange film. It this had been directed by somebody like Robert Bresson, I would have assumed that the stilted dialogue, oblique plot and very stylized acting was a conscious choice, but here I’m not so sure.

And then suddenly it turns into a farce for half an hour. And then there’s a boat racing documentary. Makes me wonder whether this is a stitch-up-job of several different films? Might also explain the length.

It’s still kinda fascinating.

As for the cocktail… I tried! But…

A River Called Titas. Ritwik Ghatak. 1973. Bangladesh.

Pimm’s Cup

  • cucumber wheel
  • lemon wheel
  • 1 part Pimm’s No. 1
  • 2 parts ginger ale

Muddle lemon and cucumber in a glass. Add Pimm’s and gigner ale and ice. Stir. Garnish with a twist of lemon.

This cocktail is appropriate for the time!

So controversial.
