The latest film from boundary-pushing director Gaspar Noé (Irreversible, Enter the Void, Climax) explores new depths of tenderness without forgoing the uncompromising fatalism that defines his work, Noé guides us through a handful of days in the lives of an elderly couple in Paris: a retired psychiatrist (Françoise Lebrun, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) and a writer (Dario Argento, director of such Italian horror classics as Suspiria and Deep Red) working on a book about the intersection of cinema and dreams.

Gaspar Noé most mature film, and the first of his films to date that you could actually call ‘moving’ … an unabashedly and audaciously experimental work.” – Jonathan Romney, Screen International

Using a split-screen effect, Noé follows them around their cramped apartment, piled high with a lifetime of books and mementos, with two cameras—a bold aesthetic choice that both unites and isolates them. Noé doesn’t shy away from the darker elements that begin to take hold, but led by the astonishing performances of Lebrun, Argento, and Alex Lutz as their troubled grown son, he has created his most fragile and humane film yet (Dir. by Gaspar Noé., 2021, France/Belgium/Monaco, in French with English subtitles, 142 mins., Not Rated)
