When a woman requests a divorce with no obvious explanation, her husband suspects infidelity. He follows her, determined to uncover the truth. Instead, he discovers something far more disturbing. Zuławski’s visceral and violent depiction of a couple’s breakdown pulsates with anxiety and adrenaline, exploring jealously, sexuality and alienation. Isabelle Adjani’s emotional and physical performance is riveting throughout, helping to create some of the most disturbing sequences in cinema.
