French film guilds support director’s film Love amid fears the country’s culture minister is cowing to rightwing pressure for more restrictive film classification
Gaspar Noé’s Love, a story of relationships, romance and 3D cum shots, has French film guilds rallying to its cause after the country’s minister of culture and communication, Fleur Pellerin, asked for its certification to be bumped up from a -16 (forbidden to under-16s) to a -18 (forbidden for under-18s).
Guilds, including the Arp, France’s association of directors, authors and producers, fear Pellerin is cowing to pressure from Promouvoir, a rightwing group notorious for pushing for more restrictive of film classification, according to Variety.

A couple of months ago, we saw a pretty Nsfw poster for Gaspar Noe's Love. The 3D film debuted at Cannes this year with many critics saying it was not much more than an artsy porn film. Being the respectable publication we are, we of course are tracking the film as it readies itself for release. So, it is our duty to share the first teaser trailer for Love. It goes without saying that even though there is... Read More »

Following its premiere at Cannes last month, the first trailer has now arrived online for Love, the latest offering from controversial filmmaker Gaspar Noe (Irreversible, Enter the Void). Warning, it’s very Nsfw and contains nudity. And bodily fluids.
“In Love, Murphy wakes up next to his young wife and 2-year-old child. He listens to his voicemail: Electra’s mother, sick with worry, wants to know whether he has heard from her daughter. Electra’s been missing for a long time. She’s afraid something really bad has happened to her. Over the course of a long rainy day, Murphy finds himself alone in his apartment, reminiscing about the greatest love affair of his life, his two years with Electra. A burning passion full of promises, games, excesses and mistakes…”
Love is currently without a UK or Us release date, but we’ll keep you posted.

Paris — French film guilds have rallied to support Gaspar Noe’s “Love,” the Cannes-preeming pic that is on the radar of Gaul’s minister of culture and communication Fleur Pellerin. The minister has asked the classification commission to reconsider its rating of “under-16 with warning,” aiming to secure for the film an under-18 rating (equivalent to Nc-17). The measure would seriously damage the movie’s commercial prospects, limiting its theatrical release and television life.
The French movie community fears Pellerin is caving in to pressures from Promouvoir, an organization led by Andre Bonnet, a former leader of Bruno Megret’s far-right party, the National Republican Movement, which recently engineered the cancellation of “Saw 3D’s” exhibition visa in France, following a five-year legal battle. Promouvoir also managed to get “Saw 3D’s” rating upped to under-18 (from the previous under-16) by the French Council of State.

Maverick helmer Gaspar Noe made a particularly sticky splash in Cannes this year with the arrival of his latest effort - the 3D erotic drama Love. Noe has never particularly been one to embrace subtlety in his work so when word came out that his new picture would be a sex film it led to a whole lot of assumptions being made, all of which proved to be absolutely true. Here's the official synopsis:love is beyond Good and Evil. Love is Sperm, Fluids and Tears. Love is a Sexual Melodrama about a Boy, a Girl and Another GIRLWhat does it all mean? Well, if you're a Noe fan trying to wade through the divided responses from the Cannes premiere here's your first chance to judge for...

Gaspar Noé's Love was hailed as the year's most sexually explicit film when it screened at Cannes last month, and while its trailer doesn't quite do justice to the sheer quantity of ejaculatory fluid spilled in the movie, there are still enough boobs and butts to get a sense of what it's all about. The film has no U.S. release date yet, but that just means it's more important to watch this teaser. It's French, which makes it art! »

Gaspar Noé’s Love, which premiered in the Midnight screening section at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, looks like it could make the Blue is the Warmest Color sex scene seem pretty tame in comparison.
This English trailer for the controversial title, his first feature since 2009’s Enter the Void, is a highly Nsfw, steamy, sexy, and intensely erotic first look full of sex and romance. Here’s the full synopsis:
A sexual melodrama about a boy and a girl and another girl. It’s a love story, which celebrates sex in a joyous way.
Love was shot in 3D, stars Noé, Aomi Muyock, Klara Kristin, and Karl Glusman. Love has a French release date for July 15 and has been picked up for American distribution, but no date has been set. Watch the trailer below:

Argentinean director Gaspar Noé isn't exactly afraid of controversy and over the years, the release of a new Noé movie is usually accompanied by some minor blip of media ruckus. This time around, the button pusher set out to direct what appears to be the world's first 3D porn.
Love premiered at Cannes to a wide mix of reviews and our own correspondent didn't care much for the movie calling it both mediocre and "pseudo artistic." I can't say that surprises me much. I've always found Noé makes movies you "experience." They don't necessarily have a strong story narrative but there's a dreamlike (or nightmare) quality to them that gets under the skin and festers.

Starring Karl Glusman and Aomi Muyock, the drama centers on an American in Paris as he falls in love and experiments with drugs and a sexual threesome.

Alchemy picked up the film for U.S. distribution but has not yet set a release date. "Love" opens in France on July 15. Watch the explicit trailer above.

I can't say I have any real interest in seeing Gaspar Noe's Love, a 3D feature delivering all the explicit goodness of your favorite porno, though Noe works a little harder to offer up a narrative, which, I guess, somehow makes it something differentc Here's the plot: January the 1st, early morning. The telephone rings. Murphy wakes up next to his young wife and 2-year-old child. He listens to his voicemail: Electra's mother, sick with worry, wants to know whether he has heard from her daughter. Electra's been missing for a long time. She's afraid something really bad has happened to her. Over the course of a long rainy day, Murphy finds himself alone in his apartment, reminiscing about the greatest love affair of his life, his two years with Electra.

Riding into Cannes on a wave of hype and bodily fluids, Gaspar Noe's "Love" (our review) hit the midnight lineup, and brought erections, penetration and hardcore sex to cinephiles in 3D. And now the director's piece of arthouse smut is headed to cinemas and the first trailer is here and of course, it's Nsfw. Read: Why Gaspar Noé’s ‘Love’ Fails To Break The Curse Of Sex On Screen The loose story which leads to lots of sex follows Murphy (Karl Glusman), an American in Paris, who meets and falls hard for Electra (Aomi Muyock), with the movie following in flashback, their sexy, druggy, music filled, threesome experimenting affair. And yes, you'll see bits and pieces of all of that in this teaser which, appropriately enough, ends with a lot of white stuff filling the screen. "Love" opens in France on July 15th. It will be released in the United »

I'm not sure I see the point to The Tribe. Writer/director Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy's story begins with Sergey (Grigoriy Fesenko), a young teen entering his first day at a boarding school for the deaf. He immediately falls into a crowd of hooligans dealing in drugs and prostituting out two of the school's young girls only to devolve into... whatc I really don't know. Utilizing no spoken dialogue, the film sticks 100% to the use of sign language without subtitles and it's a gimmick that only proves cinematically intriguing for the first few minutes, after that we're left looking for a reason, trying to decipher the character's hand gestures, attempting to make sense of the story enough to look for any sort of deeper meaning. Is it saying something about languagec Perhaps it's saying something about how we take such things as hearing for grantedc Are Ukrainian boarding schools for the »

You can sense an urge toward new genre territory in writer/director Patrick Brice’s “The Overnight,” as the film takes its sex comedy roots and tucks moments of surrealism and a gentle sweetness inside. The story of a newly relocated couple (Adam Scott and Taylor Schilling) in Los Angeles who are invited for a night of pizza, wine, and possibly more by the free-spirited Kurt and Charlotte (Jason Schwartzman and Judith Godrèche), it puts pathos under shock gags and unlikely visual draws for its nighttime sequences. A spa visit by Schilling especially stands out, and when we met up with Brice recently in La to talk about the film, he told us two main touchstones for that scene: Gaspar Noe’s “Enter The Void” and the opening scene of “Belly”. (“Basically a creative use of blacklight--not trying to hide the fact that it's blacklight, and letting people's eyes and faces get crazy and psychedelic, »

This is a reprint of our review from the 2014 Vancouver International Film Festival. Back in 2011, The Playlist ran a Halloween-inspired feature on must-see foreign language horror films. This writer fought hard for the inclusion of “Calvaire (The Ordeal)” from burgeoning Belgian genre filmmaker Fabrice Du Welz. The film achieved a very specific kind of notoriety in being lumped in with the New French Extremity, a term coined by Artforum critic James Quandt. He used the name as a pejorative to describe what appeared to be a new wave of highly transgressive works by French directors — Gaspar Noé, Alexandre Aja, and Catherine Breillat, to name only a few — starting in the late '90s and bleeding profusely into the aughts. Despite not being French, Du Welz made the team, so to speak, and “Calvaire” officially put the then 31-year-old stalwart genre aficionado on the map for fans of a certain kind of upsetting and, »

As gleefully wrong as its possibly for a film to be without breaking the law or being directed by Gaspar Noé, Ted 2 is arriving in town next month with a fresh payload of stoner silliness featuring John and his childhood repro-bear, Ted. The movie has a new red-band trailer to share below. Be warned: the list of places this is not suitable for watching in is long and comprehensive. Picking up from the first movie, we find Ted (Seth MacFarlane) now happily married to his girlfriend Tami-Lynn (Jessica Barth). The wrinkle? The pair want a baby and, being a stuffed toy, Ted lacks the biological can-do to get the job done. In steps Mark Wahlberg’s John as a sperm donor. But to become a parent, he needs to be recognised as a legal person, so he consults a lawyer (Amanda Seyfried’s Samantha L. Jackson) and gets some »
