Description:
Despite recalling the contemplative science fiction of Kubrick and Tarkovsky, this vision of loneliness in outer space bears the acclaimed French director's provocative signature, a fearless curiosity that is Denis's own.

Deep space. Beyond our solar system. Monte and his daughter Willow live together on board a spacecraft, in complete isolation. A solitary man, who uses his strict self-discipline as protection against desire, Monte fathered the girl against his will. His sperm was used to inseminate a young woman. They were members of a crew of prisoners: space convicts, death row inmates. Guinea pigs sent on a mission to a black hole. Now only Monte and Willow remain. And Monte is no longer the same. Through his daughter, for the first time, he experiences the birth of an all-powerful love.

"My aesthetic was simple: it's a jail. I wanted the interior of the space-ship to look like a prison. That was my only radical beginning in terms of aesthetics. The exterior was a sort of fortress. Because it is outside the solar system the ship didn't need to be shaped like a tube. Tarkovsky, Kubrick, they were in my mind, I have seen all those films, but I thought more about jails." (Claire Denis)
