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
Some psychotic scenes that were choreographed in Possession (1981) inspired some of the scenes in Climax. See more »
While the movie is supposed to be set in 1996, which is confirmed by the clothes, the music and the lack of smartphones, the French spoken in the film is very much 2010s, with many anglicisms or other recent verbal tics heard throughout the movie. This is due to the improvised dialogue from the cast working off of a five-page script. See more »
Like many of Gaspar Noé's films, the typical closing credits are played at the beginning of the film. See more »

If you are looking forward towards having a fever dream. look no more.
I love this movie. Not only the direction and cinematography, the script is too strong too. But that being said, take this as a warning, the movie is NOT an easy watch. if you have a problem with unconventional topics, and are not okay with watching a lot of taboo subjects, don't watch it. If you are a fan of cinema, this is it. This is cinema at one of its high points.
