Directed by Gasper Noe
French provocateur Gaspar Noe’s controversial arthouse thriller travels back in time to tell the story of a couple who experience an act of brutal violence that changes their lives forever. The film begins with the aftermath, as Marcus (Vincent Cassel, BLACK SWAN) hunts for the assailant in an S&M club, then jumps back to the tunnel where Alex (Monica Belucci, SPECTRE) is savagely attacked in one famously excruciating 9-minute shot. But the biggest shock comes at the end, which is actually the beginning of this savage story. Though the not-for-the-easily-triggered film bitterly divided audiences, it remains a must-see for fans of the Euro-shock era of the 2000’s.
A French couple experience a brutal act of violence that changes their lives forever.
Cast: Monica Bellucci, Vincent Cassel, Albert Dupontel
Gasper Noe is one of my favorite directors, a cinematic masterpiece that should definitely be watched. Not really a horror but is definitely not for the faint-hearted
the constant dizzying camera work killed it for me
Wont lie got dizzy sometimes, with the camera work. i mean if it represented the passage of time not sure why upside down was heavily suggested. still overall i wasnt disappointed performances were excellent. Monica is stellar in appearance and acting. it is pretty brutal.
Words can not describe this piece of brutal art so it is an essential watch… just be prepared because this is the other side of the mirror and it’s dark over here.
