Motives blur on the glass surfaces of the luxury offices of Magnatronics and Demonlover, two dueling multinational corporations, each vying for a lucrative new form of 3D pornography, but only one will enlist a spy willing to stop at nothing to sabotage the deal.

The spy becomes the hunted when Olivier Assayas (IRMA VEP, PERSONAL SHOPPER) plays his hand at espionage in this icy Sonic Youth-scored techno thriller set in the world of hentai distributors.

Starring Chloe Sevigny, Connie Nielsen, Gina Gershon, and Charles Berling, this Denis Lenoir-lensed head trip finds Assayas at his most experimental. (Jazmyne Moreno)
