Racy Poster For Cannes Contender ‘L’Apollonide’

Racy Poster For Cannes Contender ‘L’Apollonide’

It looks like there’s going to be a good amount of skin on display at the Cannes Film Festival this year. The trailer for Julia Leigh‘s provocative “Sleeping Beauty” with Emily Browning has already teased that you should expected some R-rated bits and pieces and early stills for “L’Apollonide” haven’t been lacking in total exposure either.

A poster has landed for the film and while it’s not quite totally NSFW, it’s got enough sideboob that your boss and co-workers might disapprove. The film, directed by Bertrand Bonello — perhaps best known for his 2001 film “The Pornographer” with Jean-Pierre Leaud — will once again find the filmmaker exploring sexuality with his film taking place in a brothel at the beginning of the 20th century. The plot goes into motion when the workers shut themselves off from the world after one of their own is horribly disfigured by a client.

Sounds interesting, and we’ll see what the film has in store once it hits the Croisette, with the festival kicking off on May 11th. Poster below. [IonCinema]
