James and Catherine Ballard lead a very unbridled sex life. Following a serious collision with Doctor Helen Remington that resulted in the death of her husband, James embarks on an exploration of the strange relationships that link danger, sex and death. Thanks to their meeting with Vaughan, a strange photographer fascinated by road accidents, the Ballard couple will end up finding a new but tortuous way to express their love...
A grandiose adaptation of the eponymous novel by JG Ballard (1973), Crash brilliantly dissects the links between eroticism and technology. For "his audacity, his sense of challenge and his originality", David Cronenberg won the Special Jury Prize at the 1996 Cannes Film Festival with this film. Still as disturbing and masterful, Crash is now available exclusively in its new 4K restoration and presented for the first time in France in 4K Ultra HD!
