Claire Denis' elliptical drama L'Intrus was inspired by a short book written by philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy about his heart transplant. Louis Trebor (Michel Subor), an ex-mercenary living in the Jura Mountains, is increasingly suffering from a heart condition. He abandons his home, his beloved dogs, and his estranged son (Grégoire Colin) in pursuit of a black market heart transplant in Korea before traveling to Tahiti, where he spent time in his youth, in hopes of reconnecting with a son he's never met.
