Vortex is coming to MUBI

MUBI, the global distributor and curated film streaming service has announced the release date for Gaspar Noé’s critically acclaimed Vortex, exclusively streaming in the UK and Ireland on MUBI from 30 September 2022.

Written and directed by Gaspar Noé (Climax, Irreversible, Enter the Void), the film received its World Premiere at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival and stars Françoise Lebrun (The Mother and the Whore, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) alongside Dario Argento (Suspiria, Deep Red, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage).

Starring film icons Dario Argento and Françoise Lebrun, Vortex guides us through a few days in the lives of an elderly couple as they cope with the degeneration of the mother’s mental health as she increasingly struggles with dementia. Presented in split-screen, the couple goes about their daily routines both together and alone. As everyday tasks become more challenging, forgetfulness shifts to something more troubling and they struggle to care for each other.

Following a near-fatal brain haemorrhage, cinematic provocateur Noé confronts his own health anxieties in this latest feature – his most reflective and personal work to date. Having debuted to widespread acclaim at the Cannes Film Festival, Noé’s stylistic departure from his previous work is a compelling and tender exploration of love and loneliness.
