Alchemy has confirmed yesterday’s news that it acquired U.S. rights to Gaspar Noé’s latest, Love. The sexual melodrama has a Midnight Screening berth here in Cannes on Wednesday. In 3D, it stars Karl Glusman, Aomi Muyock and Klara Kristin. Noé is best known to worldwide audiences for 2002’s controversial Irreversible; he was last in Cannes in 2012 with Un Certain Regard omnibus 7 Days In Havana.
Love’s story follows a man over the course of a long rainy day as he reminisces about the greatest love affair of his life; a burning passion full of promises, games, excesses and mistakes. It’s alternately been billed as a love story about a boy and a girl and another girl that celebrates sex in a joyous way. From what we’ve heard, it’s pretty explicit stuff. Alchemy’s Jeff Deutchman, brokered the deal with Carole Baraton of Wild Bunch and CAA.
