Exclusive to the IFI, the latest film from Claire Denis, Bastards, shows ship’s captain Marco urgently recalled to Paris to find his sister Sandra in a desperate state. Her husband has died, the family business has failed, and her daughter Justine is in hospital. The shady, powerful businessman Edouard Laporte is implicated as the cause of Sandra’s problems, and Marco begins surveillance of the man, taking up residence in the building where Laporte’s mistress and her son are living. This leads Marco to become entangled in a web of sinister secrets and lies that threaten to engulf him.
Bastards opens EXCLUSIVELY at the IFI on February 14th.
