L'homme blessé

Patrice Chéreau France, 1983

josé neves's rating of the film The Wounded Man

"Desire list": The great Chéreau's film, a Genet filmed in Paris stations, a deadly adventure by night of eroticism and unspoken sex , wilder than death, drived by an obsession that only through cinema could become magnificent and, in this sense, a Sirk with explicit lyrics. Anglade and Mezzogiorno have an extraordinary physical and lyrical intensity, succumbed animals in a love-sex duel.
