Bloody Oranges (Oranges Sanguines)

Bloody Oranges

Welcome to France where a retired couple overwhelmed by debt try to win a dance contest, the minister of economy is suspected of tax evasion, a teenage girl encounters a sexual predator and a young lawyer attempts to climb the social ladder. At the end of the day, the winner won’t necessarily be the one we expected. 

What begins as a series of intersecting comedic vignettes that highlight social prejudices, immorality and hypocrisy then takes a radically brutal turn half way through as the film becomes something far more confronting and graphic. This ultra dark social satire is carefully calculated to encourage us to laugh at one moment and then question whether we should have a few moments later.  

Funny, absurd, crass and horrific Bloody Oranges is designed to provoke and shock, and it succeeds in doing so. You have been warned. 

Content warning: Contains scenes of high impact sexual violence and high impact gore.
