Movie in english and french "A young man (Jean-Hugues Anglade) arrives in Bombay to look for a childhood friend who has disappeared. He has very few clues. From a seedy hotel to a hospital ward, from a Portuguese convent to a theosophical society, from Bombay to Goa by way of Madras, he tries to retrace his steps. He does not find his friend but perhaps he is only seeking his own identity. Corneau’s glorious adaptation of the book by Antonio Tabucchi captures the two sides of India: rich opulence and dire poverty in the ultimate quest for self-awarness. An extraordinary voyage to a place where time no longer exists." (Ciné-Lumière/Institut Français)
