Never Ever

À jamais

Directed by Benoît Jacquot
France, 2016


A self-obsessed filmmaker (Mathieu Amalric) and a beautiful body artist (Victória Guerra) begin a torrid affair that takes a sinister and surprising turn.

Never Ever Directed by Benoît Jacquot

Critics reviews

There is no ambiguity, no mystery—just something reminiscent of a French/Italian erotic ‘80s B movie. The director’s attempts to provoke and disturb are straight out of a textbook. The film is not complex; it is superficial. I do like the title, provided it describes my chances of seeing another Jacquot movie.

An elusive, prolific film-maker whose auteur stamp isn’t always easy to detect, Jacquot nevertheless always has an intelligent, even contemplative approach to his material, and tends to focus on complex female protagonists – both of which are certainly true of Never Ever.
