Take a look at the extremely, extremely, explicit posters for Gaspar Noé’s new movie ‘Love’ which premiered at the Cannes Film Festivalat Cannes in 3D, in the Out Of Competition selection.
Films that are screened Out of Competition are generally those that the Cannes selection committee really wants to recognize but don’t quite fit the Competition criteria.
Got it. So what’s the film about? IMDB:
A sexual melodrama about a boy and a girl and another girl. It’s a love story, which celebrates sex in a joyous way.
Cannes expands a bit more:
January the 1st, early morning. The telephone rings. Murphy wakes up next to his young wife and 2-year-old child. He listens to his voicemail: Electra’s mother, sick with worry, wants to know whether he has heard from her daughter. Electra’s been missing for a long time. She’s afraid something really bad has happened to her.
Over the course of a long rainy day, Murphy finds himself alone in his apartment, reminiscing about the greatest love affair of his life, his two years with Electra. A burning passion full of promises, games, excesses and mistakes…
The film is 135 minutes long and stars:
Karl Glusman as Murphy
Aomi Muycock as Electra
Klara Kristen as Omi
