Claire Denis’s films take on the recurring them of human conflict in different scenarios. In her first and in my opinion best film CHOCOLAT, Denis looked at what happens to black and whites in a confined space in Africa. In BEAU TRAVAIL, the foreign legionaries were examined for their actions and behaviours and in her latest, HIGH LIFE, the audience takes a look at astronauts (some of whom are hardened criminals) confined in a spaceship as they interact with each other.
The results of her latest film is a mix between genres, Denis’ style which makes for one of the most intriguing films of the year.
