|About the Film:
EROSION is a daring
psychological drama about a man who is haunted by a failing relationship.
Gabe (Emmanuel Xuereb) devises a risqué game for escape. He
invites Irene (Charis Michelsen) to dinner at a lavish mansion. Unhappily
married, Irene finds the temptation irresistible when Gabe invites her
on a second date. To her surprise, she meets him at a humble suburban
home. Playfully, Gabe admits that he broke into both houses for their
trysts. A frightened Irene returns to her husband. Unable to
make peace with his past, Gabe escalates his pursuit of Irene, who ultimately
surrenders to the thrill of abandoning her life and having sex with Gabe
in strangers' homes. House after house they push the boundaries of
pleasure and pain, attempting to defy reality by living stolen lives --
but is there really an escape from life, and how far can they go before
their past catches up with them? Experience EROSION
and find out for yourself...
Having been compared to a
modern day LAST TANGO IN PARIS, EROSION offers a raw and truthful
glimpse into the twisted, dark corners of the human heart and the price
it takes to heal our wounds.
EROSION had its world
premiere in June, 2005, at the Brooklyn International Film Festival. DFSis
honored to be showcasing its second world screening; the first screening
on the West Coast.
