PREVIEW FOR THE FRENCH FILM FESTIVAL - NOCTURNE INDIEN
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 various Alliances Francaises in India. This festival is being jointly organized by the Alliance Francaise de Hyderabad and the Hyderabad Film Club.
A young man arrives in Mumbai to look for a friend who has disappeared. He has very few clues. From a seedy hotel to a hospital ward, from a Portuguese convent to a theosophical society, from Mumbai to Goa by way of Chennai, he keeps remapping his itinerary. He does not find his friend, but perhaps he is only looking for his own identity.
Direction: Alain Corneau
