It took me some time "to get" Mani Kauls cinematographic language. But if several images of him keep lingering in your mind, you just know it does something to your mind. In "Nazar" you have death as a theme. How do you visualize the emptiness when a beloved has gone? Kaul does it by walking through the memory, trying to remember details so you have something to hang on to. Lots of white, lots of undetermined pain.
Auto-celebration of the supposed genius of the director. Failed attempt at producing the atmospheres of a Duras or a Antonioni. Emptiness and vanity leading the spectator as well as the female protagonist to jump out the window of this cinematographic shipwreck
