Acropolis Cinema presents *Coma* (Dir. Bertrand Bonello, 2022).

Los Angeles premiere! Exclusive video introduction by Bonello to precede the film.


One of the sharpest minds in French cinema today, Bertrand Bonello (Nocturama, House of Tolerance) was bound to treat us with a commentary on the pandemic. What comes as a surprise is the dark humour in Coma. Poised somewhere between essay and fantasy, this cinematic anomaly sheds light on his fatherly efforts to connect with his daughter’s predicament and mirrors widespread anxiety about our children’s future. Making use of ever-changing formats that include animation and stop-motion, observations abound on global warming, geopolitics and our seeming inability to analyse what we see. Odd obsessions, nefarious role models and harmful perceptions of gender relations—there are many reasons why virtual life can terrify a parent. Unless, like Bonello, you know that trust is the most important gift you can bestow on your child.


Film synopsis:

A teenager has a special power: she can bring us into her dreams but also her nightmares. Locked in her room, her only relationship to the outside world is virtual. She begins to go back and forth between dreams and reality, guided by a disturbing and mysterious YouTuber, Patricia Coma.
