Calcutta by Louis Malle( Visual )

7 editions published between 1968 and 2008 in French and English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Summary: When, in 1968, the French director Louis Malle went to India, he was accompanied by a film crew of two. He returned with 40 hours of film that was sybsequently edited into eight separate programmes. The series, of which "Calcutta" is part, was shown on the BBC, which caused the Indian government to close down the BBC offices in New Delhi. A kaleidoscope of impressions, the film takes a critical yet sympathetic look at the city, where overpopulation and poverty have forced nearly half the inhabitants to exist at subhuman level. Though it is an angry social document, it has been made with love and understanding. Awards: Academy Award nomination; International Film Festival, Melbourne

"The bizarre hallucinations of a heroin addict in withdrawal provide the basis for this unstructured, [semi-]autobiographical film by director Conrad Rooks. It begins as [protagonist Russel Harwick] arrives strung-out in Paris for a sleep-cure. As the strange visions begin, the story jumps haphazardly between 'reality' and [Harwick's] dream-world memories of growing up in Chappaqua, New York. The score was composed and played by sitarist Ravi Shankar"--Http://www.allmovie.com
