Here’s your shot to win a pair of tickets to see MDFF Presents Malgre La Nuit at The Royal Cinema
Screening Information: Wednesday March 8th, 2017 at 8pm-The Royal Cinema-Toronto
The director of Sombre, La Vie nouvelle, and Un lac returns with his latest investigation of extreme experience. English musician Lenz (Kristian Marr) searches for a woman named Madeleine who has mysteriously disappeared, but tumbles into an amour fou with troubled, self-destructive Hélène (French indie It-Girl Ariane Labed). Grieving the loss of her infant son, Hélène seeks oblivion in the murky subterranean world of a brutal sex ring, followed by Lenz. Also featuring Roxane Mesquida and Paul Hamy, this darkly erotic psychodrama with a stark, elliptical, hauntingly spectral narrative (co-written by Grand Central director Rebecca Zlotowski) continues Philippe Grandieux’s exploration of the body initiated with White Epilepsy in scenes of sensual abandon and raw carnality.
“A cerebral, extrasensory experience, existing as a diluted nightmare where pleasure and punishment are doled out in equal measure” Nicholas Bell, Ioncinema
