Tagline: VORTEX finds master provocateur Gaspar Noé operating on a deeply humanistic wavelength. Using a split screen throughout most of the film, Noé chronicles the hardships of advanced age as a couple, played by Dario Argento (the definitive voice of Giallo cinema) and Françoise Lebrun (LA MAMAN ET LA PUTAIN), live out the last days of their lives.
Synopsis: Presented in split screen, VORTEX tells the story of an aging couple in a Paris apartment. As the mother (Françoise Lebrun) faces advancing dementia, the father (Dario Argento) tries to care for her while dealing with his own declining health, and their son (Alex Lutz) does his best in spite of his own significant personal problems. With this film, Director Gaspar Noé (Enter the Void, Climax, Irreversible) delivers a career best, finding a level of compassion and tenderness that sacrifices none of the visual excitement that has marked his best work.
