Trouble Every Day (2001)

A deep dive into the controversial cannibal erotic horror by Claire Denis, with a stunning performance by Béatrice Dalle.

We're joined by writer Leila Latif to deep dive into the controversial erotical cannibal horror by French auteur Claire Denis, Trouble Every Day (2001). The film inhabits the strange grey area between arthouse and horror cinema, and will most definitely provoke a reaction.

We discuss the fantastic performance by Béatrice Dalle, what the film is really about, themes of infidelity, desire, the way the hyper-graphic violence is shot and Leila posits a whole new theory on the film.

Trigger warning: there is some conversation about sexual assault.
