L'Inde fantôme

Louis Malle France, 1969

Dominic Simard-Jean's rating of the film Phantom India

Possibly the most grandiose and fascinating documentary ever made. The study of the population of India; its habits, its way of live, here doesn't need to be analysed. The action and the looks of the people filmed in that movie are enough to change your conception of the world, but Malle's insights bring things even further, offering a poignant reflection of a foreigner fascinated by the unknown he's seeing.
