A dance troupe is done rehearsing in an abandoned school, ready to party and drink from a bowl of refreshing sangria. Gradually, they realize that the popular drink is spiked with LSD and the atmosphere is fueled with horrible hallucinations and manic dancing.

Gaspar Noé is back with a new, boisterous film experience – drenched in bodies, colors, a never-ending soundtrack and provocations. Unusual for a film by Noé, CLIMAX received outstanding reception from almost everyone at this year´s Cannes festival, where the film was honored with the grand prize in the Director´s Fortnight section.

Gaspar Noé (b. 1963) was born in Argentina, but work as a director in France. He is considered a provocateur in European arthouse cinema, with films such as IRREVERSIBLE, ENTER THE VOID and LOVE. His films have frequently gotten attention for scenes with explicit sex and violence. Noé´s audiovisual style is characterized by flickering strobe lights and masterly long takes, shot by his devoted collaborator Benoit Debîe.
