Description:
Based on real-life events, Gaspar Noé's dizzily extravagant and formally audacious Climax is set to throbbing 1990s electronic dance music.

It's 1996. The film focuses on the experiences of dancers in a remote hangar, assembled in a troupe that's scheduled to tour France and the US. They're all in their early twenties, a racially and sexually diverse crew, bursting with hipster street confidence. The troupe begins an all-night celebration that turns nightmarish as the dancers discover they've been pounding cups of sangria laced with potent LSD. Tracking their journey from jubilation to delirium and anarchy, Noé observes crushes, rivalries, and violence amid a collective psychedelic derangement.

"I've always been fascinated by situations where chaos and anarchy suddenly spread, whether street brawls, psychoactivelly enhanced shamanistic sessions, or parties at which the revellers lose control collectively under the influence of excessive alcohol. The same applies to my film shoots. My greatest pleasure lies in having written and prepared nothing in advance, and as much as possible allowing situations to happen in front of me, as in a documentary. And whenever chaos sets in, I'm even happier, knowing that it will generate images of real power, closer to reality than to theatre." (Gaspar Noé)
