An intimate portrayal of an elderly couple's final days, plagued by dementia.


Why watch this film?

The name Gaspar Noé often evokes formal provocation and experimentation. And there is something of the latter here, with a narrative using split screen. Yet 'Vortex' is the director's most distinct - and intimate - work, in a diametrically opposite register to works like 'Irreversible' or 'Climax'. Here we follow the last days of an elderly couple (Françoise Lebrun and Dario Argento, the legendary director of 'Suspiria'), who suffer from dementia. The story is inspired by Noé's very personal experiences (his mother's dementia and his own stroke in 2020), resulting in a deeply emotional story that will shake you to the core.
