About the film:

World Premiere at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival. Life is a short party that will soon be forgotten. Gaspar Noé’s immersive split-screen meditation on mortality follows cinematic icons Dario Argento and Francoise Lebrun as an elderly couple stricken by dementia in their final days.

“Gaspar Noé is the kind of mad scientist filmmaker whose very name invites expectations of provocative experimentation”

—Eric Kohn for Variety

About the filmmaker:

Born in Argentina, Gaspar Noé studied film at the La École Nationale Supérieure Louis-Lumière in Paris. In 1991 his medium-length Carne won the SACD award at the Cannes Semaine de la Critque. In 1998 he participated in the same section with his first feature film, Seul contre tous, followed in 2002 by Irréversible, a competitor for the Palme d’Or, like Enter the Void in 2009. In 2012 he participated in the anthology film 7 días en La Habana. He returned to Cannes out of competition, with Love (2015), Lux Aeterna (2019), and, as part of the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs, with Climax (2018).
