Bertrand Bonello’s The Beast Releases in the US

Film

The Beast by Bertrand Bonello

April 4, 2024 - April 26, 2024

Bertrand Bonello’s new film, The Beast, (Sideshow and Janus Films) opens in theaters on April 4.

The year is 2044. Artificial intelligence controls all facets of a stoic society as humans routinely “erase” their feelings. Hoping to eliminate the pain caused by her past-life romances, Gabrielle (Léa Seydoux) continually falls in love with different incarnations of Louis (George MacKay). Set first in Belle Époque-era Paris, Louis, a British man, woos Gabrielle away from her cold husband. Then, in early 21st century Los Angeles, he is a disturbed American bent on delivering violent “retribution.”

Will the process allow Gabrielle to fully connect with Louis in the present, or are the two doomed to repeat their previous fates? Visually audacious director Bertrand Bonello (Saint Laurent, Nocturama) fashions his most accomplished film to date: a sci-fi epic, inspired by Henry James’ turn-of-the-century novella, The Beast in the Jungle, infused with a haunting sense of mystery and dread.

Punctuated by a career-defining, three-role performance by Seydoux, The Beast poignantly conveys humanity’s struggle against dissociative identity and an emotionless existence.
