In the mid 1990's, 20 French urban dancers join together for a three-day rehearsal in a closed-down boarding school located at the heart of a forest to share one last dance. They then make one last party around a large sangria bowl. Quickly, the atmosphere becomes charged and a strange madness will seize them the whole night. If it seems obvious to them that they have been drugged, they neither know by who nor why. And it's soon impossible for them to resist to their neuroses and psychoses, numbed by the hypnotic and the increasing electric rhythm of the music. While some feel in paradise, most of them plunge into hell.Written by
In the sequence when we see 'audition tapes' on a TV screen, also various books and VHS covers are in the frame, that provide clues to Gaspar Noé's inspirations: Visible are titles that reference Luis Buñuel, Dario Argento and Romanian philosopher Emil Cioran, famous for his ultra-negative views on life and humanity.

This is not a movie to watch, this is an experience to have
Well, if you are going to watch a gaspar noe movie you should know what you are going to experience; search Gaspar Noe. But this movie will probably be the most popular Noe movie among popular culture or social media or whatever. So, this is a warning for those who hasn't watched a noe flm before. This is not a familiar movie for you, do not expect to see a convenient work of art.
Yet, this is an experience for you to must have. Perfect side of "cinema" to create different perspective. Do not care about plot, do not care about subtle messages. Just use your eyes, try not the think about what you see. What you are going to see is an experience through the eyes of a phantom among dancers. Phantom is there, phantom sees what they see, feels what they feel, even drinks what they drink. So, you are going to completely involve in, engage in the movie.
After the movie you may like it or not, you can even hate it. But the "ride" you will have will be a lifetime experience from movies you have watched or will possibly watch.
