With rumors circulating about a mysterious submarine off the coast of Tahiti, the island’s avuncular French high commissioner (Benoît Magimel) begins to suspect a sinister turn of events—that his government will resume nuclear weapons testing in the area. Recalling Thomas Pynchon, David Lynch, and Apichatpong Weerasethakul, this pastel-tinted slow-burn thriller was dubbed by IndieWire 2022’s “art film of the year.”
