Watch: NSFW Teaser Trailer For Mathieu Amalric's Cannes Contender 'La Chambre Bleue'

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist April 18, 2014 at 2:36PM

Is actor Mathieu Amalric becoming a Cannes staple as a director? He's making all the right movies -- in 2010 he made his first appearance on the Croisette as a director with "Tournée," winning Best Director and a FIPRESCI prize for his efforts. This year, he's returning with "La Chambre Bleue," this time shifted from Competition to Un Certain Regard, and it promises a fair bit of skin and sweat.

La Chambre Bleue

Is actor Mathieu Amalric becoming a Cannes staple as a director? He's making all the right movies -- in 2010 he made his first appearance on the Croisette as a director with "Tournée," winning Best Director and a FIPRESCI prize for his efforts. This year, he's returning with "La Chambre Bleue," this time shifted from Competition to Un Certain Regard, and it promises a fair bit of skin and sweat.

Starring Amalric as well, alongside Léa Drucker, the film is based on the novel Georges Simenon, and it tracks the intermittent affair between two people that soon grows into something a bit more sinister. Here's the book synopsis from Amazon to give a bit more detail: 

Vain, womanising Tony and passionate, manipulative Andree met eight times in eleven months in the blue room at the Hotel des Voyageurs for afternoons of abandoned love. For Tony the conversation that last time was just the casual, almost banal, talk of lovers. But for Andree it was something else. And it led inevitably to an appalling double murder and a nightmare which Tony couldn't escape.

The first teaser trailer is here and it's NSFW so close doors and curtains, accordingly. "La Chambre Bleue" opens in France on May 16th. Watch below.
