Synopsis

In this highly controversial psychodrama, a heartbroken couple grieving the loss of their child attempts to find peace and sanity in the relationship through a trip to their cabin in the woods. But nature reveals its dark roots as things begin to spiral downwards.

Our take

One of the most infamous and extreme of film provocations, Antichrist is nonetheless the work of a visionary. A must-see, maniacal horror film, and an endurance test for which Charlotte Gainsbourg won Best Actress at the Cannes Film Festival.
