After getting into a serious car accident, a TV director discovers an underground sub-culture of scarred, omnisexual car-crash victims who use car accidents and the raw sexual energy they produce to try to rejuvenate his sex life with his wife.
After developing an addiction to the substance he uses to kill bugs, an exterminator accidentally murders his wife and becomes involved in a secret government plot being orchestrated by giant bugs in a port town in North Africa.
The residents of a suburban high-rise apartment building are being infected by a strain of parasites that turn them into mindless, sex-crazed fiends out to infect others by the slightest sexual contact.
Since a road accident left him with serious facial and bodily scarring, a former TV scientist has become obsessed by the marriage of motor-car technology with what he sees as the raw sexuality of car-crash victims. The scientist, along with a crash victim he has recently befriended, sets about performing a series of sexual acts in a variety of motor vehicles, either with other crash victims or with prostitutes whom they contort into the shape of trapped corpses. Ultimately, the scientist craves a suicidal union of blood, semen, and engine coolant, a union with which he becomes dangerously obsessed. Written by

You gonna tell me that I understand nothing about movies, since Crash has won an award at Cannes but this movie should be condemned in my opinion.
The plot is : getting excited because of car incident. What the hell is that?
An excuse for some Sex scenes in the movie, often non-sense and questionable scenes. Although those are probably the best in the flick. Note that if you want to see some hot scenes you should watch "specualized movies" not this.
Add to this an ultra stressful music in the background, dark ambient and a relative slowness of the movie and you get somthing useless and boring.
I heard that Cronenberg had planned to realise this movie earlier than 1996 but this wasn't possible at that time. Unfortunately he magaged to do it later.
