Miami Theatrical Premiere Engagement!


Director Yann Gonzalez/ France/ 102 min

It’s the summer of 1979 and in the streets of Paris, France, a serial killer is on the loose. But Anne — played by radiant French pop superstar Vanessa Paradis —  isn’t aware of this yet. Instead, she is sulking over her breakup with Loïs, her lover and the editor of the third-rate gay porn Anne produces. In an attempt to win her back, she decides to shoot her most ambitious film yet, with the full support of her flamboyant best friend Archibald. But Anne gets more than she bargained for when one of her actors is brutally murdered and she gets caught up in a bizarre investigation.

Making her way through dimly lit streets, busy sets, and sweaty clubs to do the job of the ineffectual investigators, Anne is accompanied by a killer retro score composed by French electronic band M83, only one of the many aesthetic details director Yann Gonzalez carefully chose for his vibrant ode to ’70s horror cult classics.

Shot on 35mm and featuring a killer retro score from M83, Yann Gonzalez’s KNIFE+HEART is an ultra-stylish and blood-soaked ode to ’70s-era De Palma, Argento, and Friedkin.

Official selection: Cannes Film Festival – Official Competition; Fantastic Fest; AFI Fest

NY TIMES CRITICS PICK “packs in plenty of cinema acrobatics and spectacle without ever feeling out of control, even as it morphs into a far-fetched whodunit. Gonzalez contains his love of screen excess with a deliberation that never feels contrived or cheap.”-Glenn Kenny, The New York Times

“Fantastic...This magical, erotic, disco-tinged horror-thriller is like cinematic candy.”

-Los Angeles Times

“It's Hilarious and haunting and genuinely beautiful”–FilmThreat
