The Intruder

130 minutes 2013

Like many other films by the gifted and original Claire Denis, this ambitious and mysterious 2004 French feature is something I admire without especially liking. Michel Subor (Beau Travail) plays a man who gets a black-market heart transplant and goes to Tahiti in search of his long-lost son; the difficult story, inspired by philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy's book about his own transplant, might be called French to a fault, though I'm not convinced that the most fruitful approach to this brooding and provocative work is through its narrative. The impressive 'Scope cinematography is by Denis' frequent collaborator Agnes Godard. With Gregoire Colin. In French with subtitles.
