Philippe Grandrieux’ new film revolves around the character of Seymour, a young American adrift in eastern Europe. He pitches up in a dilapidated city where he becomes obsessed with the beautiful Ivana, a Ukrainian prostitute struggling for survival in the city’s underworld. Like in his first film, Sombre, which shocked audiences worldwide with its dark, hallucinatory images of a serial killer’s deranged state of mind, Grandrieux once again focuses on the hypnotic feel of another very disturbing film
