Foreign trailer for Bas-Fonds.

Magalie, her sister Marie-Stéphane and the shy Barbara escaped an oppressive society to live a marginal existence at the edges. Finding refuge in a dirty apartment, where, away from inquiring eyes, they obey only their own impulses and desires, the love triangle spends its days glued to the television, watching porn. Their symbiotic relationship sets off a corrosive dynamic infused with passionate love and violent hatred, which, once brought to its paroxysm, inevitably explodes. And it is not pretty to look at. Endless insults are merely a prelude to blows and the monstrous Magalie, given her imposing stature and powerful voice, is always victorious. Thus she reigns over the apartment, taking evil pleasure in humiliating her submissive and helpless lover Barbara. To survive emotionally, Barbara turns to crude men who she secretly meets in bars. Though they’re only interested in her for her body, Barbara nonetheless finds in their embraces a semblance of the affection Magalie tenaciously refuses to giver her. The three women seem eternally fixed in their nightmarish daily life until the madness is taken a step too far. Now with blood on their hands, the destruction of their universe seems inevitable. Pulled apart by the law, the trio haven’t seen the worst yet. Leaving one prison to enter another, their return to the real world will be their damnation.
