Grotesque, fascinating, unique new fantastic movie by Claire Denis High Life opens with a series of peculiar images. The magnificent gardens cover the floor and the greenhouse walls of the spacecraft. The baby cries from an improvised playpen. The astronaut tries to console her from the outside of the ship and accidentally loses one of his instruments that falls into the emptiness beneath him – the emphasis on down it seems that gravity still claims its will far beyond the Solar System. All these elements exist, despite the fact that most viewers will take on cinematic and real space travel, where people adapt to unnatural conditions and undergo strict astrophysics. For Denis, knocking the public at an early stage is an effective, mixed statement of purpose.
The French director debuted in English, Denis for decades was one of the great sensual cinematographers known for elliptical methods of treating love as Monetary Night and 35 frames of the Rom ] or colonialism like White Material or Chocolat or something between them like Beau Travail her film about the erotic tension between the French legionnaires in Djibouti. Her latest shot in the genre of the 2001
As usual for Denis's work, High Life successfully flips forward and backwards, but it eventually fills the missing parts. Monte and most of the crew members who were collaborators are sentenced to death, who were sent to space during a long-term search to find an alternative source of energy for the Earth. He seems to have decided to keep his head down and do his time, as does the gardener Cherni (André Benjamin). But other crew members who play Mia Goth, Claire Tran and Evan Mitchell, cause much more trouble. And none of them seems to be deeply involved with the ship's mission: to explore the Penrose process, the real-world theory developed by physicist and co-author Stephen Hawking Roger Penrose, who says that a large amount of energy can be extracted from a black hole that can potentially save the planet. Of course, it is not expected that the crew will return alive from this mission, which significantly affects the mood of the ship. For people who are already prone to violence and rebellion, the combination of neighborhoods and their status of guinea pigs in a suicidal mission naturally leads to discord. Much of the tension occurs around the devil's doctor, Juliette Binoche, who collects samples of sperm from men on board and tries to fertilize women without any benefit. When Monte refuses to take part and takes the vow of celibacy, the obsession of Dibsa is upset, and she takes dramatic steps to get what she needs.
The interest of Dibs in the engineering of a child on a vessel designed for oblivion is one of many mysterious secrets High Life which Denis endorses to leave unresolved. Despite the fact that the film will become America's largest in the world, with the main star, support for A24 distributions and without a language bar, it is also the least accessible because it is so steadfastly behind the mind. But her previous work is a hint that she considers the primordial disorder of human desire, even in an environment that functions to suppress it.
