Knife + Heart – Watch Vanessa Paradis in the trailer for new giallo inspired thriller


Vanessa Paradis stars in this neon-soaked vintage slasher pastiche from Yann Gonzalez (You and the Night), featuring a thrumming original retro-electro score by M83.

Paris, 1979. Anne (Vanessa Paradis) is a veteran gay porn producer, damaged by a lifetime of alcoholism and a recent messy break-up with her editor Loïs (Kate Moran). When one of the stars of Anne’s latest productions is savagely murdered, the shoot is thrown into turmoil. Obsessive and undeterred, she pushes ahead with the film, with the help of her loyal assistant Archibald (Nicolas Maury). But the murderer strikes again, savagely picking off her cast and crew one by one. Finally, Anne comes to realise that she is the only one who can stop the killer from destroying everything she loves.

Shot entirely on 35mm and 16mm, this is a deliciously kitsch and unapologetically queer throwback to giallo movies. A unique and tongue-in-cheek story of sex, death and obsession, it’s dirty, provocative and a whole lot of fun.

In cinemas and on MUBI from 5th July 2019.
