Claire Denis's Bastards (Les salauds) is in UK Cinemas from Friday & it's probably very, very good here is the trailer & poster

Claire Denis Bastards (Les salauds) I am a fan of French Auteur Claire Denis' films. And eagerly await each one with anticipation. Her Bastards or Les Salauds has been on my watchlist for the last year and one of my most anticipated films of 2014. It is finally here.

Bastards "Les salauds" (original title)

Marco returns to Paris after his brother-in-law's suicide, where he targets the man his sister believes caused the tragedy - though he is ill-prepared for her secrets as they quickly muddy the waters.

Director:
Claire Denis


Writers:

Jean-Pol Fargeau, Claire Denis

Stars:
Vincent Lindon, Chiara Mastroianni, Julie Bataille

But it seems to be sneaking into UK cinemas. I only heard of its release this Friday in passing. Which is a shame as Claire Denis' films although fairly intense (Ok! harrowing) are each minor masterpieces.

Although I haven't watched it in its entirety I'm loving the trailer in no small part due to its electro synth backing track with dulcet vocal overlay ala  Drive - which I hope carries over into the film which seems to be a dark tale of revenge.

Anyway below is the poster and trailer for Claire DenisBastards or Les Salauds with a synopsis from Artificial Eye.

Shipping captain Marco (Vincent Lindon, Anything For Her) receives a phone call from his sister, urgently calling him back to Paris. Her husband has committed suicide, her daughter is missing and the family business has gone under...

She holds her husband's business partner, Edouard Laporte, accountable and Marco sets out to expose his treachery. But, as he begins to scratch under the surface, Marco discovers a dangerous underworld of violence, corruption and exploitation that will culminate in a final, shocking revelation…

The new film from award-winning writer-director Claire Denis (White Material, Beau Travail), Bastards is a disturbing yet mesmerizing examination of transgression, a tour-de-force in atmospheric filmmaking and a thrilling, highly modern take on film noir.
