Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Tokyo's nasty underside, seen primarily through the eyes of Oscar, a druggie, whose sister Linda is a stripper. Oscar also has flashbacks to his childhood when trauma upends the siblings. Oscar's drug-fed hallucinations alter Tokyo's already-disconcerting nights, and after the police shoot him, he can float above and look down: on his sister's sorrow, on the rooms of a love hotel, and on life at even a molecular level. The spectrum's colors can be beautiful; it's people's colorless lives that can be ugly. And what of afterlife, is there more than a void?

- Gaspar Noe describes his movie as a "Psychedelic Melodrama".
During the Cannes Film Festival 2008, the distributor Wild Bunch presented the first teaser-trailers of "Enter The Void", one year before the film was shown in competition 2009 at this Festival. The press book contains, beside the usual synopsis a note of Gaspar NoÃ©. This director's note begins with a quote from Steven Spielberg: "Making a film is difficult, but making a great film is an almost impossible task."
The film's world premiere was near the end of the Cannes Film Festival 2009 because the film was not finished at this time. Around 50 graphic artists were working on finishing the film. The running time of this festival cut was 163 minutes. Because of the tight schedule, the film was screened without opening or closing credits. The film started with "Enter" and ended with "The Void."
After the Cannes Film Festival the post-production continued. Sensory, visual and auditory elements were accentuated. Gaspar NoÃ© edited out 4 minutes of the film and added opening credits (about 2 minutes).
4 months after the world premiere in Cannes - the film, still not completely finished, was presented a second time at the Toronto Film Festival in September 2009. Close after this festival, the film was shown at several international film festivals - in CataluÃ±a, London (both in October 2009), Stockholm (November 2009) and Tallinn (December 2009)
