From the work of Bruno Dumont comes this film titled Twentynine Palms which was released in 2003 and features Yekaterina Golubeva, David Wissak. Twentynine Palms is a small, remote American town deep in the desert of central California. It provides the unique setting (rendered in gorgeous Cinemascope) for this darkly comedic chronicle of the romantic and sexual life of a young couple in love.
Denny, a photographer, and his girlfriend Katia, leave Los Angeles to find a desert setting for a magazine shoot. Their trip is filled with bouts of frantic sex, impassioned fights, and hasty reconciliations, until the act of desperation leads to an unforeseen and brutal climax.
