An encounter between two major contemporary directors, Reinhard Hauff from Germany and Mrinal Sen, in Calcutta, opens up an unusual view of the city of Calcutta, as the setting for Sen's critical, realist study of living in India, touching on the problems of realism in cinema, even as the directors compare notes on how they have treated reality and 'used' people.
