The second film after White Epilepsy in Philippe Grandrieux’s trilogy. According to Grandrieux, the theme of Meurtriere is to show something that cannot be defined. “Numb, fanatic, unbearable, hysteria, grotesque, fear, danger, viciousness, harshness, sexuality, unpredictability, staggering, terrifying, anxious, noisy, surprise, ecstasy, desire, crudeness, perversion, embarrassment, shameless disorder, impulse to kill, and most of all; ‘unintentional’. Naked dancers shot at slow speed for a whole hour expresses bare emotions and state that are hard to deduce. The movements on the screen are rough and fierce as if they are speeding ahead. The rhythm of images and sound are wrapped around the movements of bones, flesh and muscles. The images of the four dancers are like pictures by Goya, Francis Bacon or Caravaggio and present a new experience. (JANG Byungwon)

Born in 1954. GRANDRIEUX’s first three feature films, Sombre, A New Life and A Lake demonstrate his profound and radical exploration of image, sound and narrative structures. In 2011, he directed his documentary, It May Be That Beauty Has Strengthened Our Resolve - Masao Adachi has been programmed at more than 50 festivals and universities. He also directed White Epilepsy, Meurtriere, and Despite the Night which is his latest work.
In slow motion, arms, legs, bellies and breasts intertwine, collide, latch together, submit or hold still. Cinema in its most stripped-down form becomes a pure sensory experience.
