In a near future where artificial intelligence reigns supreme, human emotions have become a threat. To get rid of them, Gabrielle must purify her DNA by going back into her past lives. There, she reunites with Louis, her great love. But she’s overcome by fear, a premonition that catastrophe is on the way.

What the Critics are Saying

“Classical and ultramodern, The Beast is an experience both bold and rich.”
– Barry Hertz Globe and Mail

“It’s a textually dense, formally ambitious, and supremely engaging, genre-melding treatise on fear and love.”
– Kat Sachs Chicago Reader

“Bertrand Bonello’s exhilarating cinematic challenge stars a never-better Lea Seydoux and George MacKay as lovers across space and time who fight to embrace the beast of their raging emotions while artificial intelligence threatens to eradicate it.”
– Peter Travers ABC News
