Marguerite Duras’s most celebrated work is a mesmerising experience with few stylistic precedents in the history of cinema.

Within the insular walls of a lavish, decaying embassy in 1930s India, the French ambassador’s wife (Delphine Seyrig) staves off ennui through affairs with multiple men – with the overpowering torpor broken only by a startling eruption of madness.

"The film’s supremely unhurried pacing permits us to luxuriate in each image. " - Wall Street Journal
