ENTER THE VOID is the highly anticipated new film from Gaspar Noé (I STAND ALONE, IRREVERSIBLE), the former enfant terrible of extreme French Cinema.
A filmmaker of a singular passion and cinematic vision that continues to challenge us, Noé is one of the most exciting directors working today. The provocative director’s latest work includes many of the director’s cinematic trademarks of intricate camera shots, pulsating lighting, uber-violence, unique original musical scoring and graphic sexual content, all played out against the sweaty neon-soaked backdrop of Tokyo’s nightscape of strip bars, clubs, and seedy hangouts, all lit up like a pinball machine.

Oscar (Nathaniel Brown) and his sister Linda (Paz de la Huerta) are recent arrivals in Tokyo. Oscar’s a small-time drug dealer, and Linda works as a nightclub stripper. One night, Oscar is caught up in a police bust and shot. As he lies dying, his spirit, faithful to the promise he made his sister as a child – that he would never leave her – refuses to abandon the world of the living. His spirit hovers over the city, wandering the streets and passing through the boundaries of various rundown apartments, dingy nightclubs and decrepit hotel rooms inhabited by characters linked to Oscar and Linda’s clandestine existence. His visions grow evermore nightmarish and distorted as details from the siblings’ past, present and future emerge to tell an atmospheric story of loss, hallucination, sexuality, extraction and excess.

ENTER THE VOID is the ultimate head-trip, a distinctive and highly original film that fully immerses the audience into the sensory world and experiences of its characters, straight into the void between life and death.

Original soundtrack contributions were supplied by Thomas Bangalter (one half of Daft Punk, who also contributed to Irreversible) and music from artists as varied as LFO, Bach, Coil, and many more perforate the film’s dynamic and original narrative. The 2 disc DVD will include both the ‘short’ and the rare ‘long’ version of the film, the latter of which includes 17 minutes of extra footage.

Film accolades include Cannes Film Festival (In Competition), Sitges (Best Cinematography and Special Prize Of The Jury) and Toronto (Vanguard Program).
Lauded as a work of Pure Cinema, ENTER THE VOID is Noé’s most mature and fully realised work to date, by one of the most divisive and boundary pushing directors of our generation.
