Murphy is an American living in Paris who enters a highly sexually and emotionally charged relationship with the unstable Electra. Unaware of the effect it will have on their relationship, they invite their pretty neighbor into their bed.
A woman on the run from the mob is reluctantly accepted in a small Colorado town. In exchange, she agrees to work for them. As a search visits the town, she finds out that their support has a price. Yet her dangerous secret is never far away.
Events over the course of one traumatic night in Paris unfold in reverse-chronological order as the beautiful Alex is brutally raped and beaten by a stranger in the underpass. Her boyfriend and ex-lover take matters into their own hands by hiring two criminals to help them find the rapist so that they can exact revenge. A simultaneously beautiful and terrible examination of the destructive nature of cause and effect, and how time destroys everything.Written by
After watching 'Seul contre tous' and being absolutely disgusted by this 'piece of... art' I decided to give a chance to the other very appreciated movie by Gaspar Noé. I was even likely to overcame the fact I seriously don't like Monica Bellucci and give her a chance in this film. However, I didn't even succeed in watching the whole movie. Special thanks and credits are going to the 'amazing' innovative and experimental shooting techniques and the boring background, low-frequency sound.
Seriously, I just don't get it what's the point in shooting a movie which you'll probably stop after the 5th minute because you've got to go to the toilet and throw up, because of the already mentioned pseudo-original shooting technique? Art that makes you throw up??? No, thanks! There are people who still prefer art that makes you feel good.
