Raak mij aan! Touch me!

Sci-fi horror about the life of the very rich on holiday in a resort closed off from the outside world. Brandon Cronenberg's cabinet of horrors is not for the faint-hearted.

Cronenberg likes to take the viewer out of his comfort zone to 'destabilize' it and he does that again in Infinity Pool.

James (Alexander Skarsgård) and Em (Cleopatra Coleman) enjoy a beach vacation in a luxury resort cut off from the outside world. James, a writer whose productivity has stalled due to writer's block, is not wealthy himself; his wife Em well - very rich. While the loving couple relaxes, James is recognized by a fan, Gabi (Mia Goth). Would James and Em want to take a trip with her and her boyfriend?

Brandon Croneberg's third feature film – he previously directed Antiviral (2012) and Possessor (2020) – is a reflection on the moral values ​​of the very wealthy against a backdrop of horror. 'Absurd', 'shocking' and 'provocative' were some of the reactions after the premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. A satire on the life of the privileged in the intelligently disruptive-fearless tradition of William S. Burroughs, J.G. Ballard and father David Cronenberg.

Please note: this film is spoken in English and not subtitled.
