Climax is a film produced in collaboration with producers of two countries, namely France and Belgium. This musical genre has the theme of horror psychology. Climax was directed by director Gaspar Noe who also wrote the screenplay. The 96-minute film is ruled by several production companies, such as; Rectangle Productions, Wild Bunch, Arte France, Vice Studio, VOO, Be TV, La Sacem, Eskwad, KNM, and Cineventure 3. Some of the characters are played by; Sofia Boutella as Selva, Romain Guillermic as David, Shoheila Yacob as Lou, Kidd Smile as Dadd, Claude Gajan Maull as Emmanuelle, and Giselle Palmer as Gazelle.
Identified with Fame directed by Marquis de Sade, Climax is a glass of cocktail music and horror that is usually confrontational. Like a blend of Carrie, Step Up and Enter the Void. It is an expression of Gaspar Noe’s epic dance-and-devolution epic description. For people who are familiar with the background of filmmakers, who struggle with sex, drugs, violence, self-injury, neon lights, taboo courage, Climax will look no surprise. The fact that he was heavily featured on the show with a bang of noisy music in recent years, however, will inspire shooting for this film.
