Gaspar Noe's new movie will be titled “Psyché”

I have love/hate relationship with Gaspar Noé's films. I thought the absolutely unsubtle, intense rape drama “Irreversible” was an ambitious and, quite frankly, fascinating film, “Enter The Void”is to me, one of the very best movies this decade had to offer, but I absolutely loathed “Love” his sexually explicit film about l'amour which featured actual actors having sex with legit penetration. 

His next film is titled “Psyché” and is being funded by Tax Shelter Belgium, its budget is reported to be around $3.1 million U.S. and will be a nostalgic look a the the ’90s.

Here’s the synopsis:

"In the mid 90’s, about twenty urban dancers joined together for a 3-day rehearsal in a closed down boarding school located at the heart of a forest, to share one last dance. They then make one last party around a large sangria bowl."

"Quickly, the atmosphere becomes charged and a strange madness will seize them the whole night. If it seems obvious to them that they have been drugged, they neither know by who nor why. And it’s soon impossible for them to resist to their neuroses and psychoses, numbed by the hypnotic and the increasing electric rhythm of the music… While some feel in paradise, most of them plunge into hell.'

Sounds Noe-esque to me. The film is set for a two-week shoot, and according to The Playlist, "the first cut could be ready by June."
