Two actresses, Béatrice Dalle and Charlotte Gainsbourg, are on a film set telling stories about witches – but that’s not all. Lux Æterna is also an essay on cinema, the love of film, and on-set hysterics.

WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

67

The Playlist by Caroline Tsai

There’s something frustrating about Noé’s approach, but also an undefinably admirable quality to the extremity of his showmanship.
75

IndieWire by Eric Kohn

As a minor work, it provides an enjoyable snippet of rambunctious formalism that puts Noé in a category of his own.

TheWrap by Steve Pond

Is it enjoyable to watch? Hell no – there’s a reason why everybody on the screen is either screaming or crying for it to stop. But you have to hand it to Noe, because it is kind of mesmerizing in its perverse single-mindedness, and the fact that “Lux Aeterna” is only 50 minutes long makes it more endurable.
