TROUBLE EVERY DAY, 2001, The Film Desk, 101 min, France/Germany/Japan, Dir: Claire Denis
What if love was a sickness? Or even worse, a cannibalistic impulse that can only be satisfied via utter consumption? Claire Denis follows these questions to their gruesome conclusions in this visceral portrayal of an all-consuming desire. When newlyweds Shane (Vincent Gallo) and June (Tricia Vessey) honeymoon in Paris, the new husband secretly pursues a renowned neuroscientist conducting studies on the human libido. Becoming more involved with Dr. Sémeneau (Alex Descas) and his tests, Shane learns of the doctor’s wife, Coré (Béatrice Dalle), whose strange illness requires her to be quarantined at all times. But all hell breaks loose when Coré escapes and unleashes a sickness deadlier than anyone could have imagined.
