This year, you’d be hard pressed hard to find better pitch: Vanessa Paradis, directed by Yann Gonzalez (Les rencontres d’après minuit, Les îles), in a gay porn slasher flick? And opposite her, the actor, Bertand Mandico? Think Friedkin’s Cruising or De Palma’s Dressed to Kill, with a bit of Vecchiali and Argento thrown in, too. In this nocturnal tale from the underworld, Vanessa Paradis is as much studied as she is magnificent. The romantic tragedy is played on the side of fanciful freedom where the sorrows of love become decadent poems. As for cinema, more than ever, it is against (to be so close to) the real.
