Vortex

Vortex

Legendary provocateur Gaspar Noé takes on a more somber key with Vortex, starring Françoise Lebrun and Dario Argento in a rare onscreen appearance.

The Father (Argento) lives peacefully with his wife (LeBrun) in their Paris apartment. One day, the Father becomes worn down by a heart condition, rendering his health in a dire state. As his wife begins to succumb to her own suffering under dementia, the couple begin to sense finality in their togetherness, reaffirming their love as often - and as strongly - as they can.

Shot entirely in split-screen, Vortex is an emotionally searing and achingly personal detour for Noé, with performances from its lead couple containing immeasurable power.
