With its gory, outré film style, Trouble Every Day shocked audiences at its 2001 Cannes Film Festival debut for its graphic depictions of carnal lust as a cannibalistic disease. Named after a Frank Zappa song, the film follows American newlyweds Shane and June Brown (Vincent Gallo and Tricia Vessey) to Paris on their honeymoon. Once there, Shane begins a search for his former colleague Leo (Alex Descas), who might be in possession of a cure to a tropical virus that has transformed both Shane and Leo’s wife (Béatrice Dalle) into ravenous sexual cannibals. With gorgeous cinematography by acclaimed DP Agnès Godard.
