Extremely inventive visual style, extremely cliche film.
India Song 1975
Fascinating and exciting formal choice to make the narration essentially an oral history, elliptically telling the story which Duras evokes visually in her distinctively haunted, decaying, fragmentary fashion.
Duras's novels are brilliant but must say, I've been avoiding her film work because I have no love for Hiroshima mon amour, a film I find deeply aggravating and uninteresting. So very pleased to say that here it is a thing of wonder to see her find such a perfect way to combine a visual method with her literary sensibilities.
The Round-Up 1966
I'd guess 90% of this film's dialogue is lies, and 95% betrayals.
