Told in just 29 single takes, with almost no dialogue, this extraordinary film describes the steps - the process - through which an actress decides, first to test her own limits, via a series of sexual, philosophical and emotional experiments, and then, ultimately, to take her own life. Fearlessly charting the darker side of human behaviour, this grave and beautiful study of alienation stars Béatrice Dalle (Betty Blue) and Guillaume Depardieu. Shot by legendary cinematographer Yorgos Arvanitis, and with an incendiary score by John Cale, it is sure to seduce the viewer.
