Director Gaspar Noé's new film takes place in an abandoned school for one night in the 1990s. Around twenty dancers gather to celebrate, and the party starts with dancing, they mix vogueing, crunch, and pop-locking. But after a while it turns out that the punch has been spiked with LSD, and the party takes a terrible turn when some are swept into a hallucinatory nightmare. Mattias Oscarsson writes in Sydsvenskan: “What follows is a hallucinatory horrible decent into violence, disgust, abuse, incest, murder and suicide. Climax is almost an anti-drug film.” Kulturnyheternas Kristoffer Viita feels that this is "An immediate feel bad classic." Noé won the big prize in Cannes side competition Directors Fortnight for this controversial film.
