21 young dancers from all over the world, spend an exuberant evening together. After a lot of hard rehearsals we now have a big tour to do. First through France, then through the USA. Everyone involved is excited, their bodies vibrate with adrenaline. The atmosphere is exuberant, everyone dances to the beats that fill the room. But then the mood changes when Selva (Sofia Boutella) discovers that one of them has mixed drugs into the sangria. Now begins a crazy trip full of mutual suspicions, delusions and panic - a trip that will change everything…

One thing at the outset: "Climax" is undoubtedly Gaspar Noé's most harmless and accessible film to date. However, this of course doesn't mean that the not undisputed filmmaker would present some light fare here. But here he does without very explicit sex scenes like in "Love" or hard to digest violence like in "Irreversible". What remains is a visual trip that is really fascinating at least at the beginning. Here, the viewer gets to see a dance sequence shot in a take, which Noé really implemented in an original and stirring way.

But what follows can only be described as extremely strenuous. It starts with minutes of trivialities. It's really annoying when two of the dancers talk about anal intercourse in the most primitive way. Or if any relationship problems are brought up for discussion at soap level. When the drugs come into play, the whole thing becomes wild and hysterical. This may be visually intoxicating, as is always the case with Noé. But there is also the question: Why should I spend my time looking at people who aren't particularly sympathetic to me, who become even more unsympathetic, in some cases even downright repulsive through drugs?

True to the motto "Is that art, or can that go away", the spirits will also be divorced at "Climax". For me personally, the film was hard to beat in its irrelevance, even though I find the visual style quite fascinating. But in the end the film left me emotionally completely cold, which has never happened to me before in a film by Gaspar Noé. A really very special movie, which is recommended for a niche audience.
