The Intruder

Critics Consensus

The impressionistic narrative may confound the viewer, but Denis crafts wonderfully poetic, dreamlike imagery.

Audience Reviews for The Intruder (L'Intrus)

  • Mar 29, 2007
    [font=Century Gothic]In "The Intruder", Louis(Michel Subor) enjoys spending his days frolicking with his dogs near the French-Swiss border while he spends his nights with a local woman. One night an intruder breaks in, but Louis kills him and quietly disposes of the body. This event along with his weakening health convince him that it is time to move on...[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]Directed by Claire Denis, "The Intruder" is a beautiful but opaque film. Early on, it is not even clear as to who the movie is supposed to be about, as a young border guard's family vies for attention. But the movie does eventually come into focus. Not giving any details about Louis' past mirrors the character's emotional detachment from the world around him.[/font]
