Conclusion: Criterion has knocked it out of the park once again with more of Satyajit Ray's film resume. This time we get 'The Big City' along with 'The Coward', all on one disc. These films are brilliant and should be seen by all of Ray's fans. The video and audio are true to source and are well done. The extras are phenomenal as well. This Blu-ray is highly recommended.
Conclusion: Like the rest of Artificial Eye's recent Blu-ray releases of Satyajit Ray's films, this new release of The Big City should make fans of the film residing in Region-B territories very happy. It does not have any supplemental features, but it uses a high-definition transfer that has been sourced from RDB Entertainment's excellent new restoration of the film. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Conclusion: Humane contemporary drama from the great Indian director Satyajit Ray, The Big City is a low-key stunner that depicts the triumphs and heartbreak of an average Bengali family after the wife decides to work outside the home. The fact that Criterion's presentation is exemplary in just about every respect makes this one a logical addition to the . What Do You Think?
