Gaspar Noe‘s Love sparks brawls in France, and the story grabs headlines. The premiere of the 3D porn movie Love at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France, did not go as planned.

Several hundreds of moviegoers lined up in front of the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès de Cannes to see the Argentinian-born French film director’s latest controversial project, those who were turned away took part in a massive brawl.

Despite being dressed in fancy suits and elegant dresses, those, who were denied entry, shoved, cursed and yelled outside of the theater. Noe’s Love, which stars Karl Glusman, Aomi Muyock and Klara Kristin, tells the story of a young American man in Paris named Murphy, reflecting on his past lost love, Electra, and their time together when they used to take part in various sexual adventures.

There are two interesting characters – Noe and Gaspar – the latter is played by Gaspar Noe wearing a strange wig and is a filmmaker. Love features explicit sex scenes between multiple characters, a transvestite prostitute and endless close-ups of penises.

The director of I Stand Alone had the following to say about the project:

“For years, I have dreamed of making a film that would fully reproduce the passion of a young couple in love, in all its physical and emotional excesses. Of all my films, this one is closest to what I have been able to know of existence, and also the most melancholic. And it gives me a lot of pleasure to be able to share this short tunnel of joys and ecstasies, accidents and mistakes.”

Mr. Noe also revealed why he decided to use 3D for the movie. “I felt that 3D would allow the viewer a greater sense of identification with the lead character and his nostalgic state,” Noe said.

The controversial film has received mixed reviews thus far, some gave the movie a standing ovation, others said there were too many penises, not enough vaginas, while few said the director was too conservative and wanted Noe to push the envelope even further.

Love is not the first cringe-worthy movie Gaspar Noe has made, in 2002, many walked out of the screening of Irreversible at Cannes because they could not bear the disturbing rape scene.
