Monica Bellucci in "Irreversible": this was behind the scenes of his controversial scene

One of the darkest moments in the history of cinema is remembered to this day by the faithful of director Gaspar Noé.

For connoisseurs of Gaspar Noé, one of the most extravagant and daring Argentine directors of the seventh art, it is no news that the French film “Irréversible” has gone down in history not only for its reverse narrative innovative, but also for the unsettling r-pe scene that put Monica Bellucci (Alex) and Jo Prestia (El Tenia) in the middle of a scandal.

French cinema has always surprised with great cinematographic works, but in 2002, those who saw Noah’s film at the Cannes Film Festival that same year did not expect such a grotesque scene as Bellucci’s.

There are nine minutes during which the camera remains static as it shows us one of the most harrowing moments in the history of cinema. Only this time was enough to create a scandal and a supposed myth that cataloged this scene as real.

Behind the scenes few people have seen

We talked a lot about this scene, but we showed little of its preparation. In fact, even 20 years later, few people know that there is a documentary that reveals how it was made.

In “Irreversible: upside down and against everything”, by director Marc Godin, a clip recorded by Gaspar Noé himself is projected where we see the repetition of this moment.

This is a choreography in which you can see how Monica Bellucci (Alex) and Jo Prestia (El Tenia) practice their movements for the famous r-pe scene.

This film was released in 2021 and went unnoticed by the vast majority of viewers, especially those in Latin America.
