DIRECTOR: CLAIRE DENIS
CAST: ROBERT PATTINSON, JULIETTE BINOCHE, MIA GOTH, ANDRé BENJAMIN
Science fiction as done by Claire Denis is science fiction unlike anything you’ve ever seen before, a bold experiment to the outer limits of genre. Lead Robert Pattinson, giving a performance of quiet intensity and gravity, is first encountered living alone with a baby on a spaceship adrift in the dark of space. Flashing back from this somber and beguiling opening, Denis introduces us to the former crew of this prison ship, among them Pattinson, being used as guinea pigs by Juliette Binoche’s diabolical Dr. Dibs, trying to prove that a child can be conceived and born in outer space. Troublingly erotic, both intensely physical and philosophical, Denis’s first fully English-language film is a work of mastery and melancholy, a film following a voyage into the unknown that is itself exactly that.
