The city of Twentynine Palms, California provides the unique setting (rendered in gorgeous Cinemascope) for this controversial look at the romantic and sexual life of a young couple in love. A photographer (David Wissak) and his girlfriend (Katia Golubeva) leave Los Angeles to find a desert setting for a magazine photo shoot. Their trip through Joshua Tree is filled with bouts of frantic sex, impassioned fights, and hasty reconciliations, until an act of desperation leads to an unforeseen and brutal climax. Directed by Bruno Dumont (The Life of Jesus and Humanité). (Partially subtitled) Official Web Site
