The life of Anne-Marie Stretter, wife of the French ambassador of India in the 1930’s. The soundtrack of Son nom de Venise dans Calcutta désert is the same as that of India Song – only the images are changed.

Did Duras make this new version of INDIA SONG to trick people into sitting through the same beautiful beautiful beautiful torture twice? If so, I'm glad she did. It really pays off to sit through almost the same film...or whatever it is...again. A desert journey, but worth it for every grain of sand. A necessary evil, not an unnecessary sequel.
