Press Materials

World renowned filmmaker Clair Denis’s most controversial, divisive and under appreciated films to date. With its gory, outré film style, Trouble Every Day shocked audiences at it’s 2001 Cannes Film Festival debut for its graphic depictions of carnal lust as a cannibalistic disease.

 

Named after a Frank Zappa song, the film follows American newlyweds Shane and June Brown (Vincent Gallo and Tricia Vessey) to Paris on their honeymoon.   Once there, Shane begins a search for his former colleague Leo (Alex Descas), who might be in possession of a cure to a tropical virus that has transformed both Shane and Leo’s wife (Béatrice Dalle) into ravenous sexual cannibals. With gorgeous cinematography by acclaimed DP Agnès Godard, Denis delectably photographs the shockingly violent imagery that terrifies not so much by its goriness as by its correlations between intellect and instinct, ecstasy and agony, displaying the blurred and often interchangeable limits of human desire.

 

With music by British chamber pop band Tindersticks, the film was largely panned by critics upon its initial release but is now considered Denis’ most overlooked masterpiece.
