India Blues Eight Feelings 2013
1h 36min | Drama, Romance | 24 September 2013 (Greece)
Synopsis “India Blues” is an edgy, bold and passionate love story between two young men who are sometimes afraid to love each other. Through exploring their experiences and the trivial or important moments in their relationship in real time (their first kiss, their first sexual encounter, their awkward silences, their last hug), we are submerged in their universe of love and the feelings that come with it. Like Jean-Luc Godard once said, “a film should have a beginning, a middle, and an end. But not necessarily in that order”. In taking full advantage of that challenge, lies the unique element of “India Blues”: the feelings the characters experience are not presented to us in sequence, but in the “wrong” order – Pain, Lust, Happiness, Jealousy, Attraction, Peacefulness, Love and Anger, function as eight segments-chapters in the coming together and the tearing apart of two very different people. The intensity of the two characters’ feelings, which is highlightened even more by the fact that we, exactly like them, experience things in real time, draws the spectator in the emotional roller-coaster of a love relationship, with all the joy and pain involved in it.
Regarding the blurb…don’t believe everything you read and not a word of this incredulous fabrication of the truth!
What it amounts to is a monotonous montage of a man smoking…masturbating and having sex.
Sparse in dialogue, concept and talent.
