Director Julia Ducournau follows up her debut Raw (FilmFear 2016) with a baroque shocker that won the top prize of the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. A young dancer (Agathe Rousselle), who suffered a terrible injury following a car crash when she was a child, embarks on a fantastical and violent odyssey involving serial murder, self-harm, physical transformation and a mysterious pregnancy. Ducournau twists narrative forms into radical new shapes while staging a number of flamboyantly extreme set-pieces, pushing the film towards a state of sensory overload. Courtesy of Altitude/Film4.
