One of the most divisive movies to premiere at Cannes this year was, to little surprise, the latest work from Gaspar Noé. His 3D melodrama, Love, tracks the relationship between three individuals, and now we have a better glimpse at the erotic journey thanks to the first trailer from France, where it’ll be released in a few weeks. For being very much NSFW, those in the U.S. worried we may not get to see his original version will be glad to know Noé recently told Vice, “I don’t cut movies. I don’t like scissors.”

We said in our review, “Love endeavors to capture the ecstasy of love as expressed through sex, something that Murphy, a film student, proclaims as the most noble – and, supposedly, yet unrealized – of cinematic ambitions. By name-checking Pier Paolo Pasolini, Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Andy Warhol through Murphy’s t-shirts and film posters, Noé situates himself not only in the tradition of some of cinema’s most eloquent pioneers on the subjects of love and sex, but at its vanguard. Love doesn’t say nor show anything new. Arthouse fare featuring copious unsimulated sex and little else is hardly extraordinary any longer and Love actually belongs to the abortive tradition of such films as Michael Winterbottom’s equally ineffectual 9 Songs.”

Check out the trailer below for the film starring Karl Glusman, Aomi Muyock, and Klara Kristin. For more on the film, check out our highlights from the Cannes press conference here.

January the 1st, early morning. The telephone rings. Murphy wakes up next to his young wife and 2-year-old child. He listens to his voicemail: Electra’s mother, sick with worry, wants to know whether he has heard from her daughter. Electra’s been missing for a long time. She’s afraid something really bad has happened to her. Over the course of a long rainy day, Murphy finds himself alone in his apartment, reminiscing about the greatest love affair of his life, his two years with Electra. A burning passion full of promises, games, excesses and mistakes…
