Julia Ducournau – who with this and Titane quickly becomes the heir to David Cronenberg’s bodily horror realm – presents a meat drama about family and desire. Garance Marillier plays Justine (the nod of the name to De Sade supposedly intended), a student who joins her older sister Alexia (Ella Rumpf) in veterinary school.
