Audience Reviews for Nenette and Boni (Nénette et Boni)

Unusual, dreamy, and immersive. Claire Denis keeps a grip on the audience's senses while venturing into edgy subject material. The performances are naturalistic and powerful, and the music by Tindersticks underlines the overall tone of the film. A beautiful, surprising, compelling film.
