Synopsis

Why do people only remember their past? Why does no one listen to premonitory dreams? Why does the perception of time only travel in one direction? Why is free will an illusion? Why is man only an animal?

Director’s Statement

Why this film? Because the original was told backwards and many viewers, swamped by the anticlockwise structure of the editing, didn’t understand certain aspects of the story. Presented clockwise, everything is clear and also darker. No dialogues have been cut, nor have any events in the story. Which is why this version is called Straight Cut. Until now, Irréversible was a deliberate puzzle. Now it’s a diptych, like an old record whose B side is the less conceptual mix of the track on side A, but this time with voices that are more audible, rendering the meanings of the words more fatalistic.
You will see. Time reveals all things.
