Synopsis

Seymour is a young American, adrift in desolate, lawless Eastern Europe. Then, in Sofia, a city corroded by nightmare and corruption, disease and hunger, a place of savage dogs and pornography and bodies – the very young and the almost dead – a beautiful prostitute. Helpless, obsessed, Seymour pursues her into a perverse and violent erotic underworld, a modern day Orpheus sacrificing everything to desire, driven by unbearable longing through sickness and madness towards death. A harrowing, ecstatic journey to the end of the night, shot through with lustrous, troubling beauty and alive with visceral dread, “A New Life” is the long-awaited second feature from Philippe Grandrieux, director of the prize-winning “Sombre”.

“Mit allen Augen sieht die Kreatur Das Offene. Nur unsre Augen sind Wie umgekehrt und ganz um sie gestellt Als Fallen, rings um ihren freien Ausgang.” – Rainer Maria Rilke
