Querelle - Preview

Querelle

Preview by Jack Foley

QUERELLE (Brad Davis) is a sailor on shore leave in the French port of Brest.

Following an argument, in which he stabs and kills his drug-smuggling partner, he seeks shelter in a nearby brothel. There he befriends the predatory madam, Lysiane (Jeanne Moreau), who leads him into his first homosexual encounter.

From then on Querelle embarks upon a voyage of highly charged and sometimes violent sexual self-discovery that will transform him forever from the man he once was…

Adapted from Jean Genet’s infamous, ground-breaking novel, the final film of celebrated director Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s career is a striking, surreal and utterly unique tale of sex and murder that has gone on to become a cult classic.

It is released on Blu-ray and DVD on Monday, March 10, 2014.
