Paris, summer 1979. Anne (French pop star Vanessa Paradis, Heartbreaker, The Girl on the Bridge) produces third-rate gay porn. After her editor and lover Lois (Kate Moran) leaves her, Anne desperately tries to win her back by shooting her most ambitious film yet with her trusted, flaming sidekick Archibald (Nicolas Maury) and his sexy playmates. When one of her actors is brutally murdered, Anne is shocked and horrified, but turns it into a plot for her latest film, Homo-cide. But as more of her cast are stalked by a masked killer, Anne gets caught up in a strange investigation to try to track him down and save her company. Director/co-writer Yann Gonzalez (You and the Night) returns with an ultra-stylish, blood-soaked ode to ’70s-era European giallo and American genre cinema of De Palma, Argento and Friedkin. The film features a killer retro score from the director’s brother M83 (Oblivion, You and the Night). Jonathan Genet and Romane Bohringer co-star. For mature audiences. (Fully subtitled)
