Monte and his baby daughter are the last survivors of a damned and dangerous mission to the outer reaches of the solar system. They must now rely on each other to survive as they hurtle toward the oblivion of a black hole. A staggering and primal film about love and intimacy, suffused with anguished memories of a lost Earth, High Life is a haunting, thrilling achievement from visionary director Claire Denis.

High Life possesses the same awe at cosmic generations at the furthest reaches of space and time as Stanley Kubrick's 2001 did.David Bax, Battleship Pretension
