KNIFE + HEART
[UN COUTEAU DANS LE CŒUR]
This campy erotic thriller from Yann Gonzalez (YOU AND THE NIGHT) is set in the seedy milieu of the gay porn demimonde of Paris in the 1970s, where director/producer Anne (a fiercely committed Vanessa Paradis) aspires to be an underground auteur, working closely with her stock company of carefully selected "real men" actors and ace editor Loïs (Kate Moran), Anne's former lover with whom she's still self-destructively obsessed. But someone is preying upon the cast and crew of Anne's latest production, a twisted killer with a sick vendetta. "Picture CRUISING as directed by Brian De Palma, and you'll have a pretty good idea of what to expect from this frisky parody-homage, which is equal parts kinky and kitsch, rendered with the kind of meticulous attention to lighting, composition and sound (including a reunion with M83, who also scored Gonzalez's first film) that all but guarantees a cult following." – Peter Debruge, Variety. DIR/SCR Yann Gonzalez; SCR Cristiano Mangione; PROD Charles Gillibert. France/Mexico/Switzerland, 2018, color, 110 min. In French with English subtitles. NOT RATED
