In the most ambitious and haunting film from Claire Denis, one of the world’s foremost living filmmakers, an elderly man with many regrets about his past leaves his hermetic cabin existence in the snowy Alps for Korea and then Tahiti, in search of both a heart transplant and the estranged son he hasn’t seen in years. Featuring dreamlike camerawork and editing, and a lot of feral dogs, L’Intrus (The Intruder) pushes Denis’s elliptical style to the extreme, transforming the logic and laws of narrative, creating what can be best described as the Claire Denis film.
