The Intruder ★★★ L'Intrus 2004

Spurred on by a mild heart attack, Louis Trebor (Subor), a troubled and aging loner living in a forest near the French-Swiss border, sets out on a journey to bring meaning to his selfserving life. He first arranges a black market heart transplant then travels to South Korea to purchase a boat, which he sails to a remote island near Tahiti were he lived and fathered a son many years prior. As his health begins to deteriorate, his dreams, visions, memories and reality all blur to create a metaphor for Louis's inner turmoil. Denis creates a stunning piece dripping with impressionistic imagery. 130m/C DVD . Michel Subor, Beatrice Dalle, Gregoire Colin, Florence Loiret-Caille, Yekaterina (Katia) Golubeva; D: Claire Denis; W: Claire Denis, Jean-Pol Fargeau; C: Agnes Godard; M: S. A. Staples.
