We love you so much, we could eat you. In Claire Denis’ carnal cannibal film Trouble Every Day, American couple Dr. Shane Brown and June go to Paris under the ruse of a honeymoon. In reality, Dr. Brown is really on the hunt for a neuroscientist and his wife, Coré, a woman he was once obsessed with and who suffer from the same malady (read: cannibalism). Coré is imprisoned in her house to prevent eating sprees but chance encounter with the outside world violently penetrates her realm. This unfortunate turn of events triggers an event so cataclysmic that it just might lead to Shane’s chance for a normal life. Love, desire, and hunger. Sexual cannibalism is complicated.
