Moon in the Gutter

La Lune dans Le caniveau

1984

Jean-Jaques Beineix
Director

Following the rape and suicide of his sister, a dockworker strives to control his rage and personal life when a glamorous stranger arrives.

Unique film from Beineix, well almost unique, if it weren't for One From the Heart which has the same studio bound ambience AND Kinski.

Depardieu and Abril are knockout, the film something of an exercise in frustration (for Depardieu's character and the audience).
