In the languid days of 1930s colonial India, the tale of a French diplomat’s wife and her many suitors. Their story is told out of sequence by a concert of voiceovers. The heavy torpor of the monsoon-laden atmosphere is underscored by Carlos d’Alessio’s throbbing, unforgettable score and the sublime lassitude of Delphine Seyrig’s inimitable voice. To enter this waking dream by the author and screenwriter of Hiroshima, mon amour is to be consumed by Asian otherworldliness, high society and memory1 Perreault, Luc. « Marguerite Duras et ses voix », La Presse, 17 sept. 1977.
