This film was released on Friday 20th November 2015 and is no longer screening.
On New Year’s Day, Murphy (Karl Glusman) wakes up with partner Omi (Klara Kristin), their son, and a hangover, and receives a voicemail from the mother of his former girlfriend Electra (Aomi Muyock). She has not heard from her daughter in some time, and is concerned for her safety. Murphy however, has long been estranged from Electra, and thinks back as to how their relationship unravelled. Auteur and professional provocateur Gaspar Noé has filled the film with copious, explicit, and unsimulated sex, but rather than this being the confrontational tactic one might expect, it is central to his exploration of the importance of sexual compatibility within a meaningful romantic relationship. This is not to say that there not flashes of sly humour, particularly facilitated by shooting in 3D, but at heart it is a sentimental film about love and regret. (Notes by Kevin Coyne)
Please note: There is a €1 supplementary charge on all 3D screenings.
