The provocative director is back with a primal, acid-soaked offering
Dancers. A Party. Vinyl. Sangria – so begins the new trailer for Climax, Argentinian filmmaker Gaspar Noé’s first cinematic endeavour after Love. The film, starring Sofia Boutella alongside a cast of professional dancers and newcomers, is the depiction of a late night dance party that turns into a nightmare.
Climax sees a troupe of young dancers get together in an isolated, empty school building to rehearse. After practice, the troupe continues to party in an all-night wild celebration, that takes an unexpected turn when they find out they’ve been drinking LSD-spiked sangria all along.
“Tracking their journey from jubilation to chaos and full-fledged anarchy, Noé observes crushes, rivalries, and violence amid a collective psychedelic meltdown,” Climax distributor A24 reports.
After receiving the critics’ stamp of approval and winning the Directors’ Fortnight Art Cinema Award at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, it’s safe to say Climax is definitely one of the most anticipated films set for release this fall.
Climax will be released in UK cinemas on September 21
