Did You Know?

Trivia

The film was initially called "Danger". It was supposed to be Gaspar Noé's second film after I Stand Alone (1998) and Vincent Cassel and Monica Bellucci were to star in it, but after reading the treatment for the film they called up the director to say that they wouldn't do the film because it was a very intimate one (since they were a couple). So Noé had to come up with an idea for another film he could do with the big French couple so he could have something to give to the producers whose attention he had caught with the project and earn money to pay his rent. That's how Irreversible (2002) was made. See more »

Goofs

Murphy uses a Loreo 3D camera to take pictures of Electra. At one point he turns the camera on end to shoot. This means the two resulting images will not align correctly to make a single stereoscopic picture. He also neglects to use the flash in the dimly lit room. See more »

Quotes

Murphy: Maybe we are not the great artists that we dreamed we were. Maybe this is all just shit.

Self-Indulgent Melodrama
28 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

No one was able to walk out of the theater this evening as the director Gaspar Noe was in the audience. I'm certain he took note of folks laughing at scenes meant to have profound emotional impact, like the entire ending.

Little character development with the main character's 17 yr old wife, or 18, they had sex when she was 16, nothing more than a prop. Their child, the unintended creation of a broken condom, is named "Gaspar". The wife is an orphan of sorts, unwanted by her mother but somehow has the cash and wherewithall to rent an apt in Paris and do nothing more than go clubbing, listen to her iPod and bang strangers.

Profoundly self-indulgent about lost love, but hard to take seriously when the lost love happens between supposed college students (we never see the college, college books or a single classmate) living and partying in Paris, none of whom even are even remotely worth caring about. Except perhaps the teenage wife, after she gives birth, but again her only role is to get banged, have a kid and though otherwise absolutely gorgeous, kind and loving as only a supermodel with minimal lines can be, this one only serves to annoy the hell out of the main character.

Reminded me of Brown Bunny, but that was a film with guts. This is just an excuse to film cumshots in 3D, wrapped around a plot that never went anywhere with no sense of finality or a hint of revelation or completion. In fact, the movie had to flash a massive THE END for the audience to know the film was over.
