Trouble Every Day


New 35mm Print!

(2001) dir Claire Denis w/Vincent Gallo, Beatrice Dalle, Tricia Vessey [101 min; 35mm]
Critically acclaimed director Claire Denis (Beau Travail) directs this gory and sensuous film that combines elements of vampirism and cannibalism to depict forbidden desire. A newlywed American on his honeymoon in Paris (Gallo) becomes obsessed with the wife (Dalle) of a doctor and her disturbing affliction that finds her confined in the daytime and lusting for blood and flesh.

“This elliptical and polarizing film maudit is a heady and haunting exploration of desire taken to its disturbing extreme.” – BAM Cinematek

“A hypnotic, unsettling work by one of the most sensuous filmmakers of the last 25 years” – Melissa Anderson, The Village Voice
