If you're reading this, you most likely have an idea by now of what this film is, what it contains, and how it is achieved. Curiosity finally got the better of me too, and I'd be lying if I didn't say a large part of me regrets it. I do not, however, wish to blame the film-maker, as given the content and message behind the movie, I can't think of any way to improve upon the ultra-tragic nightmaris... read more

Hay dos características de esta película que la hacen inconfundible, no se puede ocultar que es francesa y que está dirigida por Gaspar Noé. Un muy buen elenco logra una pieza de arte única. No apta para impresionables, cruda y muy fuerte. Diseñada bajo una dinámica inversa que hace la historia aún más interesante. Excelente musicalización y fotografía redondean un film para paladares e... read more

This is an excellent film with great cinematography, acting and storytelling technique. However, think before watching this if you find especially graphic scenes in films disturbing. I don't want to give too much away, but there are at least two particular acts of brutality against both men and women. I personally feel the prolonged acts of violence are essential to the emotion of the story, but c... read more

Events over the course of one traumatic night in Paris unfold in reverse-chronological order as the beautiful Alex (Monica Bellucci) is brutally raped and beaten by a stranger in the underpass. Her boyfriend and ex-lover take matters into their own hands by hiring two criminals to help them find the rapist so that they can exact revenge. A simultaneously beautiful and terrible examination of the destructive nature of cause and effect, and how time destroys everything.

" Notes: In fact, I even saw the damned thing in the movie theater in France when it was released back in those days. I remember it quite well, back then, there was a huge buzz about this movie. Indeed, even though it was only the 2nd directing effort of Gaspar Noé, the guy already had a notorious reputation and, for his next movie, he managed to get Vincent Cassel and Monica Bellucci, pretty much the most glamorous couple of French stars at the time.

"Оставляю без оценки. В 15 лет я посмотрел первый для себя фильм Гаспара Ноэ — Вход В Пустоту и он произвёл на меня сильное впечатление закрепившееся на длительное время. Мне даже казалось, что это лучший фильм из тех немногих, которые я к тому моменту посмотрел. Но время идёт"

“The brutal rape of a woman in a tunnel. Story told backwards.

Wasn't as impressed with this movie as everyone else seems to be. The camera rolling all over the place didn't do anything except make me dizzy. Except for the rape the story seems like nothing. The rape was horribly extended.” read more

"9.6. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Jos arvioidaan kokonaisvaltaista, ruumiillistunuttakin, vaikuttavuutta sekä emotionaalisen musertavuuden määrää, kovin montaa Irreversiblen ylittänyttä en keksi. Useammankin kerran nähty, viitisentoista vuotta sitten, mutta ei tällainen unohdu tai saati menetä tehoaan kai milloinkaan. Näkökulma muuttuu ja se on elokuvan itsensä sekä katsojankin kannalta hienoa. Haastava se on, palkitseva jos on valmis vastaanottamaan äärimmäistä elokuvaa tunteaks"

"Gaspar Noe demands way too much from his audience and, until the very end there is nothing pleasant or romantic about this movie, and at the end you have seen all the shit beforehand so it's still unsettling."
