Synopsis

Vortex guides us through a few days in the lives of an elderly couple in Paris: a retired psychiatrist (Françoise Lebrun) and a writer (Dario Argento) working on a book about cinema and dreams. In their apartment, piled high with a lifetime of books and mementos, a downward spiral ensues.

Our take

European cinema’s enfant terrible Gaspar Noé is back with a formally audacious, split-screen tour de force. With revelatory performances from French New Wave icon Françoise Lebrun and horror maestro Dario Argento, Vortex grapples at the heart-wrenching limits of love, comfort, and mortality.
