In French, English, Italian, and Spanish with English subtitles
One night. An unforgivable act. A tale told in reverse.
Acclaimed filmmaker Gaspar Noé’s unflinching exploration of human savagery and the uncompromising nature of time, IRREVERSIBLE was met with a groundswell of acclaim and uproar upon its premiere at Cannes in 2002. Stylish, sexually frank, and brutal, the film’s conceit of exploring the events of one terrible night on the streets of Paris in reverse chronological order was celebrated and derided in equal measure, helping to further cement Noé’s legacy as a cinematic enfant terrible.
Not for the faint of heart, easily offended, or anyone with photosensitivity, this is Noé’s dark masterpiece.
