Knife + Heart (Preview)


In the summer of 1979, Parisian filmmaker Anne (Vanessa Paradis) makes third-rate gay porn movies featuring her motley crew of actors. After her editor and lover Lois leaves her, she tries to win her back by shooting her most ambitious film yet. But when Anna’s cast are being targeted by a masked killer, she finds herself drawn into an investigation that turns her life upside-down.

Following the acclaimed You and the Night, the latest film by Yann Gonzalez is a deliriously crazy, ultrastylish and blood-soaked riffing on the Italian Giallo genre with influences from Brian De Palma (Dressed To Kill) and William Friedkin (Cruising). Shot on 35mm film and featuring a music score by M83, Knife + Heart is a unique cinematic experience.
