One day, I would love to get my hands on a DVD with Marguerite Duras' film India Song. I have a part of it on only. A fantastic film and hearing this song I just uploaded is wonderful.
You hear this song repeatedly throughout the film. Duras often uses that method. In her books (and at least in this film) she would use the same text or narrative again and again, maybe a little bit altered and perhaps in a context that is slightly different, but it works every time.
I do not speak French, and there were no subtitles. It was absolutely ok, she gets through to you.
