Irreversible is perhaps one of the cruelest films ever made. Marcus (Cassel) and Pierre (Dupontel) set off on a blind rage of revenge after the former’s girlfriend Alex (Bellucci) is raped. Noé built it around Cassel and Bellucci, the most beautiful couple of 90s European cinema, trading on their popularity and charisma to make their violent descent even more assaulting.

Contains scenes of graphic violence and sexual violence that some viewers may find distressing.
