The Hunger, GFT, 21st January

The-Hunger-webThe Hunger18

GFT, 12 Ros Street

Tuesday 21 January

The key film for doomed romantics in the 80s, with Catherine Deneuve as a glamorous lady vampire who promises her lovers eternal life. When her latest boy-toy (David Bowie) shrivels and grows old, she turns a bisexual eye to a young blood doctor (Susan Sarandon) who oddly has weird scruples about staying ‘normal’. With Schubert and Delibes on the soundtrack, Tony Scott’s debut is all billowing curtains, fluttering doves, high-fashion outfits and soft-core sex. Plus a cameo by punk super-group Bauhaus!

Each of the films in the Gothic: Love is the Devil season will be introduced by David Melville Wingrove. Join us as David sets the scene in his introduction and stay afterwards for a brief discussion on the madness that is love.
