A retired couple deeply in debt try to win a rock dance competition. A minister is suspected of tax fraud. A teenager makes the acquaintance of a pervert.
Simultaneously, a retired couple overwhelmed by debt tries to win a dance contest, as the minister of economy is suspected of tax evasion, and a teenage girl encounters a sexual maniac, while a young lawyer attempts to climb the social ladder. When the shoe drops, the winner won’t necessarily be the one we expected. This is the explosive cocktail of characters set in action by Jean-Christophe Meurisse in his second feature film. Presented in Midnight Screening in Cannes Film Festival, Bloody Oranges builds bridges between souls living in a frazzled society.

Media reception

Variety
"Few movies swap genres halfway through, and even fewer do so successfully. "Bloody Oranges" does both."
