Back to collaborate with the director Viggo Mortensenalready the protagonist of the previous films of the Canadian director (The promise of the murderer, A History of Violence And A Dangerous Method).

Crimes of the Future, which takes up the title of a previous short film from 1970 (but without being a remake), seems to distance itself from Cronenberg’s later works. The film also marks the famous director’s return to the genre of body horror (a term that he himself does not like), already shown in films such as Shivers, Rabid, The Brood And The fly. A shocking and extreme, visceral film, in which David Cronenberg returns to explore the evolution of man and the planet in relation to technology. An out-of-the-box vision, an unsettling science fiction film that encompasses all the very topical themes of the Canadian author’s filmography.
In an unspecified future, the disastrous effects of pollution and climate change have changed the body of human beings, now capable of carrying out continuous mutations. Former surgeon Caprice (Léa Seydoux) harnesses the ability of her partner Saul Tenser (Viggo Mortensen) to develop new organs to create artistic performances of surgical removal, in which the couple publicly show the internal metamorphosis of man. These avant-garde shows attract the attention of Timlin (Kristen Stewart), investigator of the National Organ Registry, but also of a suspected subversive group whose aim is to take humanity to the next evolutionary stage.
