Vortex

Dir: Gaspar Noé
Cast: Dario Argento, Françoise Lebrun, Alex Lutz
142mins   2022   France, Belgium, Monaco   15   French, English    Subtitled   

Gaspar Noé's tender and undeniably powerful exploration of loneliness and love focuses on an elderly couple who spend their days in a Paris apartment.

Both love and care for each other, but are grappling with the early stages of dementia. Presented in split-screen, we follow the couple as they go about their daily routines both together and alone.

As everyday tasks become more challenging, forgetfulness shifts to something more troubling and their son struggles to care for them as they enter a vortex of mental and physical degeneration.

'One of the finest pictures Noé has made' - Xan Brooks, The Guardian
