“Portrays brute physical desire with a force rare in movies”
“Unflinching…among Chereau’s most confrontational works”
—The New York Times
“Explicit and gritty. For the first time in years, audiences will be able to experience one of the most controversial gay films in French cinema history.”
Aching with desire, the nights of Paris map the erotic yearnings of the disaffected Henri (BETTY BLUE’s Jean-Hugues Anglade in a haunting breakout performance) as he wanders the streets, seduced by the criminal underworld and a mysterious man named Jean. Written over the course of six years by acclaimed filmmaker and theater director Patrice Chéreau (QUEEN MARGOT) and legendary gay French author and activist Hervé Guibert (Crazy For Vincent), THE WOUNDED MAN is a lyrically transgressive tale of sexual awakening.
