So it goes in this kind of romantic nonsense that isn't too different in essential content from the four-hankie movies of the nineteen-thirties and forties.

A static doomed lover movie that is meant to excite you stylistically as it bores you to death with its thin drama.

Audience Reviews for India Song


I think the end of the copy I watched got cut off, only adding to my general confusion as to what the hell anyone was talking about.

Boring and utterly dreadful. I think we're meant to learn something about romance, but it's as if it was written by a 15 year-old girl who knows nothing about romance. There's more to being in love that just talking about being in love and how much it tortures your soul. Points for a somewhat original narrative (although it's blatantly influenced by Resnais) and some painterly images (which you will have a LONG time to study), but otherwise a real drag.
