The Beast (La Bête) (M)

The Beast (La Bête) movie poster

In the near future where emotions have become a threat, Gabrielle finally decides to purify her DNA in a machine that will immerse her in her previous lives and rid her of any strong feelings. She then meets Louis and feels a powerful connection, as if she has known him forever. A melodrama crossed by the genre, which unfolds over three distinct periods, 1910, 2014 and 2044.

Punctuated by a career-defining, three-role performance by Seydoux, The Beast poignantly conveys humanity's struggle against dissociative identity and emotionless existence.

Cast: Léa Seydoux, George Mackay, Guslagie Malanda, Tom Neal

Director: Bertrand Bonello

★★★★★ "a luxurious cinematic experience; it’s created with such elan and attack, and the musical score amplifies its throb of fear." GUARDIAN

★★★★ "This love story is also anything but a love story, which is part of what makes it so compelling" FLICKERING MYTH

★★★★ "What he delivers is not just a densely packed art movie but the most potent horror picture of the decade so far." ROGEREBERT
