A couple are looking for their child who was lost in the tsunami - their search takes them to the dangerous Thai-Burmese waters, and then into the jungle, where they face unknown but horrifying dangers.
The young police man Vincent is the best in his class, and denies to be recruited to the special forces. But when the corrupt Milo manages to get a grip on him, his life is turned into a living nightmare.
After wandering a ruined city for years in search of food and shelter, two siblings find their way into one of the last remaining buildings. Inside, they find a man who will make them a dangerous offer to survive the outside world.
Michel, a murderous womanizer, meets introverted Gloria online and treats her to a whirlwind one-night-stand. Offering herself as an accomplice in his seductive crimes, the unhinged lovers embark on a deadly odyssey amplified by wild sex, unbridled jealousy, and passionate forays into the dark arts. This smart and gory shocker breathes new life into the lovesick horror genre to serve up a chilling tale of white-hot desperation and terrifying devotion.Written by
I approached this film by Fabrice du Welz, with circumspection but I decided that he couldn't deliver something as twisted and difficult to watch as Calvaire, his first film.
How wrong was I. One of many films based on the real life "Lonely Hearts Killers", I challenge you to find one as affecting as this. Disturbing. Unhinged. Crazy. Just a few of the words that sum up this film and the relationship depicted in it.
Lola Duenas' turn, as Gloria, is as startling as it is twisted.
