Marco (Lindon) is a seaman who comes ashore to unravel his family's messy involvement with a sexually depraved tycoon (Subor), only to embark on an affair with the man's partner (Mastroianni). Despite committed performances and moments of visual beauty, the enigmatic approach and chopped-up narrative make for a confusing and empty effect.

Claire Denis' latest is a needlessly tangled neo-noir with moments of great visual beauty
Films by Claire Denis offer certain pleasures as standard. Ravishing visuals, courtesy of her regular DoP, Agnès Godard. Stirring sounds from her musical collaborators, Tindersticks. Subtle performances from actors who tend to be awfully good looking.
