France, Germany, Japan | 2001 | Claire Denis
Claire Denis’ most maligned—and perhaps misunderstood—film has been re-released by The Film Desk in a new 35mm color print. It’s a strange, shocking drama about an American newlywed (Vincent Gallo of The Brown Bunny) and a promiscuous French woman (Béatrice Dalle of Betty Blue) who discover that they share the same all-consuming, twisted sexual hunger. A mysterious medical clinic and radical scientific experiments enhance the creep factor. Music by the Tindersticks. “Five stars (highest rating)…[An] inimitable horror film.” –Time Out New York.
