A forgotten spaceship navigated by former criminals has to complete a dangerous mission before heading into a black hole in a sterile yet brutal sci-fi horror by one of the key representatives of the New French Extremity, Claire Denis.
A spaceship piloted by criminals serving death sentences is approaching a black hole outside the Solar System. One of the crew, Monte (Robert Pattinson), is celibate but tricked into becoming a father. When the baby is born, tensions on the ship intensify.
A claustrophobic horror about the cold abyss of outer space by French filmmaker Claire Denis is in many ways an heir to Kubrick—a beautifully shot, strong, and classical in its essence film of deep questions, meaningful pauses, and endless philosophical loneliness.
