L'Inde fantôme

Louis Malle France, 1969

Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Phantom India

What is sticking with me is the faces. I don’t think I’ll forget the dancer in the school, or the woman working in the field, as many as there were. Malle manages to bring his outsider perspective without too much of it’s inherent opinions and privileges. This lets us experience India from that perspective too. It is six plus hours of transfixion.
