It’s a 51-minute film – one with BÃ©atrice Dalle and Charlotte Gainsbourg playing versions of themselves as they make a film about witches. The plot surrounds a film set, where technical problems and psychotic outbreaks gradually plunge the shoot into chaos.
As you’d expect, a nutty-looking film from NoÃ© here. The trailer, it must be said, isn’t for those that suffer from any sort of photosensitive epilepsy. It’s an appropriate trailer, then, as those aware of NoÃ©’s films will know.
This film has been taking a while to get distribution worldwide. It was screened at Cannes back in 2019 and has been gradually hitting film festivals that have been slowly coming back to life as the pandemic unfolds. Mixed reviews for it, as you’d expect with NoÃ© film; a 56% on Rotten Tomatoes and a 6.3 on IMDb at the time of writing.
Also starring Abbey Lee, Karl Glusman, Claude-Emmanuelle Gajan-Maull & FÃ©lix Maritaud, Lux Ã†ternaÂ opens in U.S. cinemas in New York on May 6th and in L.A. on May 13th. A wider release will follow sometime after.
