Instinto básico (Basic Instinct)

Session 4: The modern-day "femme fatale". The triumph of independence and sexuality



Instinto básico (Basic Instinct)*
Paul Verhoeven
1992 / USA / Bluray / 127 min / OV with Spanish subtitles

Hidden behind the most provocative leg-crossing in the history of the cinema is one of the grittiest thrillers of the early nineties. But Catherine Tramell, the ultimate femme fatale who undermined the patriarchy and avenged all the women who had gone before, offering new options of identity, refused to hide. A story of sexuality, violence, passion and blood that will mark you forever.

*Not recommended for under-18s.
