From director Gaspar Noé (Irreversible; Enter the Void; Love) comes a hypnotic, hallucinatory, and ultimately hair-raising depiction of a party that descends into delirium over the course of one wintry night.
In Climax, a troupe of young dancers gathers in a remote and empty school building to rehearse. Following an unforgettable opening performance lit by virtuoso cinematographer Benoît Debie and shot by Noé himself, the troupe begins an all-night celebration that turns nightmarish as the dancers discover they’ve been pounding cups of sangria laced with potent LSD. Tracking their journey from jubilation to chaos and full-fledged anarchy, Noé observes crushes, rivalries, and violence amid a collective psychedelic meltdown.
CLIMAX is Noé’s most brazen and visionary statement yet.
Starring Sofia Boutella, Romain Guillermic, Souheila Yacoub
Winner – Director’s Fortnight Prize, Cannes Film Festival
“More brilliantly deranged, in its microscopic vision of society in collapse, than anything the director has ever inflicted on us.” – A. A. Dowd, AV Club ”
“Noe has made a film that’s seductive in its rhythms and bold visualization of his young dancers’ sometimes beautiful, other times brutal somatic expressiveness.” – Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter”CLIMAX
