Now THIS is a movie poster: ‘Thirst Street’

Don’t think this tells you anything? Oh yes, it does. It tells you this is not a blockbuster and likely to have unconventional storylines.


Alone and depressed after the suicide of her lover, American flight attendant Gina (Lindsay Burdge, A TEACHER) travels to Paris and hooks up with nightclub bartender Jerome (Damien Bonnard, STAYING VERTICAL) on her layover. But as Gina falls deeper into lust and opts to stay in France, this harmless rendezvous quickly turns into unrequited amour fou. When Jerome’s ex Clemence (Esther Garrel) reenters the picture, Gina is sent on a downward spiral of miscommunication, masochism, and madness. Inspired by European erotic dramas from the ’70s, THIRST STREET burrows deep into the delirious extremes we go to for love.

Lindsay Burdgem, Damien Bonnard, Esther Garrel, Lola Bessis
Narrated by Academy Award-winner Anjelica Huston.
