Don’t Look Down / Haut perchés (N/C 15+)

In this seductive, mysterious drama, versatile French duo Ducastel and Martineau (Theo and Hugo, Jeanne and the Perfect Guy) have made one of their most inventive films. In a high-rise apartment, a woman and five men gather to share their experiences of a man that they have all been involved with, to their cost. In the main room, they talk, drink, dance, while one by one, each goes next door for a private moment of truth. Theatrical in the best sense, the film turns the apartment into a stage for a superb ensemble cast. Alongside echoes of Fassbinder and one-set dramas like Hitchcock’s Rope, Manuel Marmier’s photography and unconventional lighting make this a sculptural celebration of space and colour, as well as a psychological nail-biter. (Jonathan Romney London Film Festival programme.)
