2015, Alchemy, 134 min, France, Belgium, Dir: Gaspar Noé

“For years I have dreamed of making a film that would fully reproduce the passion of a young couple in love, in all its physical and emotional excesses,” notes writer-director Gaspar Noé of this erotic drama. Murphy (Karl Glusman) is a young American living in Paris, caught between his past and his sexually and emotionally charged affair with the unstable Electra (Aomi Muyock). After Electra mentions fantasizing about a threesome, she and Murphy invite their pretty neighbor (Klara Kristin) into their bed, an event that has seismic effects on their relationship. Among the most provocative premieres at Cannes, LOVE features some of the most graphic sex scenes ever filmed. In English and French with English subtitles.
