Filmmaker Alain Corneau occupies a unique place in French cinema. By himself, he embodies the main genres of cinema: films noirs, detective stories, musicals, adventure films and comedies. For this reason, the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs is screening 6 of his films through the Alliances Francaises in India. This festival is being jointly organized by the Alliance Francaise de Hyderabad and the Hyderabad Film Club.

Charles Saganne, a son of peasants, is an officer who has risen up the ranks. In 1911, as a young lieutenant tired of garrison life, he leaves France for the great adventure of the Sahara. He falls in love with the young and lovely Madeleine de St-llette. Then, under the orders of Col. Dubreuilh, he covers himself with glory in the South Sahara.

On a mission to Paris, he has a brief affair with Louise Tissot, a novelist. After pacing the desert, he marries Madeleine. Back in France, he dies soon afterwards in the trenches during the war of 1914-1918. In 1922, Col. Dubreuilh names a fort in the middle of the desert after him.

Direction: Alain Corneau
