Film description

Paris, Summer 1979. Anne produces third-rate gay porn. After her editor and lover Lois leaves her, she tries to win her back by shooting her most ambitious film yet with her trusted, flaming sidekick Archibald. But one of her actors is brutally murdered and Anne gets caught up in a strange investigation that turns her life upside-down.  

Nominated for last year’s Palme d'Or, Yann Gonzalez’s Knife+Heart is a delirious, daring and deliciously shot comic-horror, set to the electronic sounds of French music group M83. 

This screening is part of Film Feels: Obsession, a UK-wide cinema season, supported by the National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network. Explore all films and events at
