If Viggo Mortensen ever made you so mad you wanted to punch him in the face, in that exact second he would look like Vincent Gallo.

Close-ups of those in pain as a result of compulsive, cannibalistic behavior are the most affecting images, and it's this kind of sensitivity to suffering that makes Denis' movie compelling. Yet, the central metaphor seems typically vampiric, especially when it parallels sexual lust with literal blood lust, so I didn't come away with much more than that. Note: Vincent Gallo is so gross looking even after a scene where he gets out of the shower it still looks like he needs a shower.

Rightly considered an example of New French Extremism, for its erotization of bloodletting and bloodification of sex, it would also be fair to assess this as Good Old French Obscurantism. It does seem to invite endless scholarly analysis, but if you cut through the bull it's just a slow, haphazard movie, where you have no idea what the fuck is going on, except that there's violence now and then.

Have no idea how I haven't ranked this before. Probably the most honest depiction of the slippery, amorphous boundaries that define sex that has ever been put to film.

I mentally wished that someone texted me -- and that happened, so I left the film after 80 min, had a coffee with this girl who makes me cry every night and went back home. TED is a pictorial study of desire and it finds such an unsettling imagery through silence and action -- bites, masturbation, rape, screaming. The lack of any explanation or fate asserts one thing: this is about what is primal -- flesh, blood, urge, semen, anger, no matter what, as long as it leads to some kind of catharsis.

An exercise in minimalism, to say the least. There's a hell of a lot of intrigue in this film, but what exactly it all adds to .... is also quite ambiguous. This sometimes leads well into some genuinely disturbing scenes, but a lot of the film is quite tired and dull and, overall, it's just too vague for my liking. Nonetheless, this is still a somewhat unique romantic-horror.

Pretty interesting, though I didn't enjoy it as much as the other Denis films I've seen. Gallo may be a stumbling block for many - he seems to be an acquired taste (if you'll pardon the pun).

Not even a soundtrack by the (awesome) Tindersticks can save this pretentious muck. Denis abandons plot for sensuality, atmosphere and visuals, but can't pull off any of those, which leaves the film without aim. If you've never watched an arthouse movie and you're squemish to boot, this might jolt you a bit, but to me it was just a lame, drawn out excercise in controversy-baiting. The dialogie is inexcusable. (Edit: Yes- Dialogie. What, you've never heard of that term? Noob.)

As a film like (Cronenbergs) The Fly, this film shows that 'romantic drama' and 'horror' are not necessarily contrasting genres.

Some of the bloody imagery here is gorgeous, but most of Trouble Every Day is forgettable. The analogy of sex to cannibalism or murder is hardly anything fresh, and in its minimal approach the film fails to say anything more. Even in regards to what themes are there, sex is actually extremely distant from the narrative and most is Gallo wandering in near silence, acting poorly, and searching for someone between scenes and images where we aren't given enough information for any possible emotion.

Really struggled with this--probably should have read the description beforehand. I've appreciated other Denis films I've seen, but the sexual violence here was so overwhelming that I couldn't appreciate her interest in bodies and spaces between people.

This movie's very divisive, so it's kind of funny that I came out pretty much in the middle on it. It has an intriguing atmosphere and is consistently interesting, but it doesn't really have any kind of payoff. It feels underwritten and I wasn't at all satisfied in where it went. I was left kind of wondering why I'd watched it and feeling a bit cheated, but the journey to get there is not uninteresting. Weird movie.

I've been waiting to see more of the kind of digital imagery we get here. There are some wonderful moments in this, but, um, for the most part I don't get it.

Vincent Gallo is disgusting, but it's that kind of movie. As a horror movie, it plays every single classical trope except the wrong way around, making for a movie that's less scary and more intensely uncomfortable.

...ein unausgegorener Mix aus prätentiöser Sex-Philosophie und nekrophiler Romantik. Ohne intellektuelle Schärfe oder aufregende Erotik. (die ganze Rezension sowie die kontroversesten Filme der letzten Zeit gibts auf der Seite unserer Videothek cinegeek.de

Reminds me of The Hunger, another moody, enigmatic horror film that isn't really horror but is absolutely horror at the same time. I like the way it feels immediate even with the slow and steady pacing and it looks great. It feels a bit too enigmatic for my tastes, though. I can see it's a depiction of desire and urges and the struggle to control them but I can't translate that into something I can connect with, and if you ignore the allegorical level it's a pretty plain story.

A perplexing, ambiguous horror film. Leaves itself very open as to quite what it's about, though themes relating to disease, marital problems (I really liked a comparison I read between this and Zulawski's Possession) and adultery are all evident (and all intertwined). The film is to be commended for making the cannibals sympathetic, and the horror scenes not gratuitous but instead an expression of the pain these people are struggling with as they struggle to hold back their urges.
