Birth and death are extraordinary experiences. Life is a fleeting pleasure. Gaspar Noé's Cannes Film Festival C.I.C.A.E. Award winning film CLIMAX centers on a troupe of hip-hop dancers in the mid-1990s, experiencing a bad trip after accidentally ingesting psychedelics. It quickly becomes impossible for them to resist to their neurosises and psychoses, numbed by the hypnotic and the increasing electric rhythm of the music. While some feel in paradise, many of them plunge into hell.
