Second Run debuts Adoor Gopalakrishnan's MAN OF THE STORY on DVD (review)

Epic in scope but intimate in focus, Adoor Gopalakrishnan's MAN OF THE STORY covers forty years of India's history as experienced by Kunjunni.  Abandoned by his father and raised by his grandmother when his mother falls ill, Kunjunni is initially frightened by the changing social and political landscape of India.  Leaving home for college, he soon sheds his feudal familial roots to fight for social change and embrace new ideas and movements whenever the old ones become too rigid and oppressive.  His broadening political awareness also allows him to come to terms with the deep-seated emotional pain of his family life.
