What seems like an innocent wine tasting weekend turns into a bizarre, wicked, sensually overheated debauchery, culminating in a murderous grand finale evening and fateful morning after.
Bacchanalia will release in theaters and on DVD on October 10, 2017. It will release on DVD in North America and is available for pre-order. Courtesy of Bayview Entertainment and Gravitas Ventures. Shot in 2013 in and around Nice, France under the working title as The Winedancers, since shown at a special screening at Cannes and two other film festivals around the globe.
The Bacchanalia trailer is intriguing, to say the least. It starts with friends going to a wine festival. From here, the next sequence of clips is very confusing but suspenseful. A lot of mystery is involved. From a brief clip, they have, seemingly, been invited for some reason other than wine tasting.
The content in the clips become darker suggesting a rather darker and more in-depth story and plot. Being more observant in the clips, I suspect this film has something to do with one of three themed scenarios: Cult, Witches, or Vampires. Even the cover poster art may suggest something of this sort.
Topped off with a dramatic, haunting musical score, Bacchanalia becomes an intense concept as the trailer sequence unfolds. The cinematography transfers from bright and vibrant to dark lighting. The plot unwind reminds me of some of the most puzzling films I have seen. One perfect example of a film that comes to mind is Melancholie der Engel. From the cinematography to the complexity of the concept, to the musical score, the Bacchanalia trailer takes me back on a trip down memory lane with that film.
Melancholie der Engel, in my opinion, is a cinematic art piece. Of course, the film makes the list of one of the most controversial films of all time. Due to the nature of it’s content, it’s more of an underground film that’s not easy to find. From the trailer, Bacchanalia appears to stand in this midst. This is definitely a film that worth checking out.
