Denis' most edgy film, combines sex with vampirism and sexual attraction with the most primal instincts. The film, which caused a mini scandal at the Cannes Film Festival, gave Tindersticks the opportunity to create one of the best opening songs in the history of cinema and offers moments of genuine terror for those who can stomach them.

Trouble Every Day

A bit of a scandal when it was screened for the first time at Cannes Film Festival and strongly jeered at, Claire Denis’ most misunderstood film is a bloody hybrid of terror and eroticism, with an impressive Beatrice Dall as a woman stricken with a mysterious disease that makes her eat human flesh and Vincent Gallo perfectly chilling as the scientist who may be suffering from the same cannibalistic madness.

In this story that sounds like second-rate science fiction film the director mixes sex with vampirism and sexual attraction with the most primal animal instincts and gives Tindersticks the chance for of the best credits songs in the history of cinema, ending up offering unforgettable moments of genuine horror to viewers with nerves of steel.
