It's been a few years since I have seen this film, but the images still stick with me. An intense psychological drama, the film explores the harrowing weekend when two heroin addicts attempt to kick their habit. The film is claustrophobic - the couple have boarded themselves into their basement apartment. The mood is stifling and constrained, allowing the audience to feel the intensity and desperation the characters experience.
There are occasional pretentious scenes where the male lead reads French philosophy aloud. One can't help laughing, but I don't think we're supposed to. If you can get beyond this silliness, you won't be disappointed. I found "H" much more intense and grim than "High Art".
