The first trailer of High Life of Claire Denis gives a taste of the trip spatialo-sex with Robert Pattinson.
On paper it is an equation that is a little absurd, which sees Robert Pattinson’s cross-the cinema of Claire Denis. If the actor has demonstrated a true curiosity, or even requirement of filmmakers (David Cronenberg, James Gray, Werner Herzog or David Michôd), he argues here, in a territory that is entirely new in the film Trouble Every Day, White Material and A beautiful inner sun.
The scenery is of the two sides since the first movie in English Claire Denis is his first foray into science-fiction. High Life tells the journey of a group of young criminals, selected to participate in an experiment on board a space station. A history of fertility, sexuality, alternative energy sources and black holes, in a retro-futuristic, and under blue lights, of which here is the first trailer.
Robert Pattinson found his partner in Cosmopolis, Juliette Binoche, to conduct this macabre dance with the body. Mia Goth, on his side, like a radar to atypical project, after Nymphomaniac, A Cure for Life , and Suspiria.
Difficult to say more on High Life without giving too much away, both the film of Claire Denis’s like nothing, and that the director was not afraid of the big thing. Left to confuse, and twist the genre to establish his story, at any price.
Worn by a very good press since its presentation in Toronto, High Life has also provoked strong reactions. Great movie awesome and bold to some, total scam and grotesque to others : response in French cinemas on 7 November.
