Will this film be the big Cannes shock that festival-goers love? The first photos of “The Substance” in competition this year could shake the Croisette. Here’s what we know about Frenchie Coralie Fargeat’s film.

What will be the shock Cannes films of 2024? The Substance should definitely be one of the films that will delight thrill-seekers! This is a film that could be placed in the “body horror” category, a genre favored for example by a certain David Cronenberg, also in competition at Cannes this year.

The first images set the tone, and allow us to get a glimpse of its 3-star cast: Demi Moore, Margaret Qualley, Dennis Quaid…

The motif of the snake or dragon appears several times, with scales on the costumes.

The official Cannes website has posted these photos online, along with the official synopsis of the film: Have you ever dreamed of a better version of yourself? You should try this new product: The Substance. It changed my life. With The Substance, you can generate another version of yourself, younger, more beautiful, more perfect… Just share the time. One week for one, one week for the other. A perfect balance of seven days. Easy isn’t it? If you follow the instructions, what could go wrong?

Demi Moore’s big comeback

The Substance will see the return to the forefront of Demi Moore, who we had mostly seen on the series side in recent years, like Feud on Canal+. His last important role in the cinema, in a film released in France, dates back to Margin Call, in 2012.

The French release date of The Substance is not yet known.

For the record, this is the second feature film by French director Coralie Fargeat, after the horror film Revenge released in 2018. The young director was also noticed thanks to a short anticipation film, called Reality+. Coralie Fargeat recently directed episodes for the Sandman series on Netflix.
