| French director Alain Corneau claimed that "Nocturne Indien" is a "Polar".
In "Nocturne Indien",Alain Corneau's handling of two senior Indian actors Iftekar and TP Jain is absolutely splendid.Watching them utter some serious lines written by Alain Corneau one gets a feeling that they have been working in serious films through their lives.We get to see 4 different layers of India as this film's primary vision is is based on an Italian novel "Notturno Indiano" written in 1984 by famous Italian writer Antonio Tabucchi.Alain Corneau's film is second vision of "Nocturne Indien" with its archetypal focus on a westerner's look at eastern mysteries.Third vision of this film is presented by India as a country without any embellishment.Lastly,fourth vision is the spectator's vision who is free to draw any conclusion after having read the book or see the film.While discussing his film "Nocturne Indien", famous French director Alain Corneau funnily remarked that like most of his other films,"Nocturne Indien" is also a "Polar".This might appear to be a funny thing to exclaim as those who are acquainted with French culture know that "Polar" refers to a thriller.In reality,Nocturne Indien is not at all a thriller in the real sense of the word.It is likely that many viewers might mistake it for a thriller as the search for a missing man is one of this film's major highlights.French actor Jean Hugues Anglade is a perfect reason to watch this allegorical film which shows a positive image of India.
