Son Nom De Venise Dans Calcutta Désert

Fortnight 1976, Feature film, 1h58

Synopsis

« India Song » arises out of an imaginary place populated by imaginary characters interlinked by function.
The French Embassy set-up is unlikely but plausible and the characters who emerge are real, especially the two main characters : Anne-Marie Stretter and Michael Richardson.
Here the events arise out of places emptied by death. Dialogue and music are rigorously preserved.
The soundtrack of « Son Nom de Venise dans Calcutta désert » is the same than « India Song » – only the images are changed. Yet the transposition is far reaching, creating a change not only in meaning but in essence.
