WATCH: New Trailer for ‘Love’ Asks What Your Ultimate Fantasy Is
French filmmaker Gaspar Noé isn’t afraid to push boundaries. His previous films Irreversible and Enter the Void dared us to look away from difficult subject matter, while dazzling us with technical visuals and clever non-linear narratives. So when he premiered his latest film Love at Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, audiences weren’t exactly surprised that the film is a provocative sexual melodrama shot in 3D. Especially given early marketing campaigns for the film included “NSFW” in bold letters everywhere and Noe confessing the film is meant to “give guys a hard-on and make girls cry.” But the critical reaction from Cannes suggested the film is a bit more gentle than you may expect—including our own review which stated, “It may be Noé’s tamest and most grounded film yet.”
This new trailer is safe for work, though it does walk a thin line. Love opens in 3D Theaters in New York on October 30th, 2015 and expands to more on November 6th. Below is a brief synopsis of the film:
Murphy is an American living in Paris who enters a highly sexually and emotionally charged relationship with the unstable Electra. Unaware of the seismic effect it will have on their relationship, they invite their pretty neighbor into their bed.
