  • Claire Denis's TROUBLE EVERY DAY is a spine-tingling chiller. When the young couple Shane (Vincent Gallo) and June Brown (Tricia Vessey) embark on their honeymoon, they share a champagne toast in plush first class seats as they soar over the Atlantic on their way to Paris. Shane pays an extended visit to the men's room where he has a foreboding vision, and June is worried, but her concern soon passes as she shares an awkward embrace with him. In Paris, a pretty young hotel maid (Florence Loiret-Caille) shows the couple to their room, and Shane stares her down with the hunger of a wolf. The couple refrains from sex, though as June undresses for a short nap, an irritated bite mark is visible on her arm. Shane leaves his wife to her nap, and hurries to a laboratory where he desperately searches for scientist Lo Smeneau (Alex Dscas). Meanwhile, at Leo's house, the frothing Cor Smeneau (Batrice Dalle), his wife, is locked away in a room where she seethes with blood lust. Slow, languorous camerawork and detailed attention to the contours of bare skin hint at the trouble to which the title refers, while a near-complete lack of dialogue and a moody musical score by Tindersticks keeps viewers calmly at bay. When the truth about Lo, Shane, and Cor comes out, two graphic sex-murder-cannibalism-mutilation scenes reveal the extent of the trouble at hand.
