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.
Tokyo's nasty underside, seen primarily through the eyes of Oscar, a heavy drug user, whose sister Linda is a stripper. Oscar also has flashbacks to his childhood when trauma upends the siblings. Oscar's drug-fed hallucinations alter Tokyo's already-disconcerting nights, and after the police shoot him, he can float above and look down: on his sister's sorrow, on the rooms of a love hotel, and on life at even a molecular level. The spectrum's colors can be beautiful; it's people's colorless lives that can be ugly. And what of afterlife, is there more than a void?Written by
Gaspar Noé intended the film to be shown at 25 frames per second, rather than the 24 usually used in cinemas. The original cut is 154 minutes at 25 fps, or 161 minutes at 24 fps. See more »
15 minutes into the film, there is a bathroom POV scene where the character is looking into a mirror and splashing water on his face. in the sink, the hands have a ring on them, but in the 'mirror', they do not. See more »
Hey. Hey, Linda. C'mere. Come outside. I wonder what Tokyo looks like from up there.
I'd be scared.
Scared of what?
Of dying, I guess. Falling into the void.
They say you fly when you die.
It's fucking cold.

At the Cannes Film Festival the film was screened without any opening or closing credits, the film began with "ENTER" and ended with "THE VOID". See more »
I watched that movie last night. I was waiting for the end but the story reversed in abstract sequences again and again. The scene's clustered into cores to continued the hole story in a wild manner. Simply I can't leave it. "Psychedelic" would be the word to describe such beautiful title. In some sense I was getting confused but it was so simple to understand SEX MONEY POWER and LOVE. I scared of some ugly truth filmed like 'brutal' 'mental' 'torture'. Although I was addicted by its notions.
Cinematography is like playing a game with the camera and lights. I feel, I am inside the void loosing my control after taking drugs. Director can cut some frequent street and room shifting scenes that make no-sense at all. The movie is very lengthy. Overall it is a masterpiece..
I think it is not important to rate "Enter The Void". The title is suitable for 10/10 and 10/10. A masterpiece is a masterpiece... A personal thanks to the director Mr. Gaspar Noé. You kicked everyone's ass in your project.
