Encore Screenings. Paris, Summer 1979. Anne (French pop star Vanessa Paradis) produces third-rate gay porn. After her editor and lover Loïs leaves her, she tries to win her back by shooting her most ambitious film yet with her trusted, flaming sidekick Archibald. But one of her actors is brutally murdered and Anne gets caught up in a strange investigation that turns her life upside-down. Shot on 35mm and featuring a killer retro score from M83, Yann Gonzalez’s KNIFE+HEART is an ultra-stylish and blood-soaked ode to ’70s-era De Palma, Argento and Friedkin.
“This movie packs in plenty of cinema acrobatics and spectacle without ever feeling out of control, even as it morphs into a far-fetched whodunit….An apt, and not at all unserious, example of queer cinema at its most playful.” —Glenn Kenny, New York Times “...Equal parts kinky and kitsch, rendered with the kind of meticulous attention to lighting, composition, and sound...that all but guarantees a cult following.” —Peter Debruge, Variety “This magical, erotic, disco-tinged horror-thriller is like cinematic candy...set to an electro-pop soundtrack by M83.” —Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times
