Humanity escapes to a far-off plant because Earth has become uninhabitable. The safe haven for all ends up being a site of death for men. This new planet, called "After Blue," has an environment that promotes enhanced body hair development. For the men, this internal expansion results in death. This is the unusual and odd preamble to Bertrand Mandico's After Blue, which is an even stranger and odder tale.

The sapphic sci-fi fantasy tale from the 1970s and 1980s features Roxy, a teenager who discovers Kate Bush buried up to her neck in the sand. Roxy is unaware that she unintentionally let loose a serial murderer, but Kate Bush offers to grant her wishes. After being released free, Kate goes on a murdering spree before going missing. Roxy and her hairstylist mother Zora are exiled, but if they want to make things right, they must track out Kate. Roxy embarks on a bizarre journey that will involve danger, illicit encounters, spirits, and more. One needs see the trailer first in order to fully appreciate After Blue's absurdity.

Although After Blue is not for everyone, it can have a sizable fan base. It is an extremely styled film that seeks to carry viewers to another realm of life. Uncompromising in its vision, Mandico's film features a score by Pierre Desprats and photography by Pascale Granel that is brimming with life. The picture is in danger of being overtaken by the overtly sexual undertones and gruesome images. However, it comes in such a delicious package that one is forced to set aside their reservations in order to enter its realm. After Blue is similar to Anna Biller's The love Witch in that both adhere to a particular style and film genre.

The story is intriguing, with characters living in a completely alien universe and a backdrop that feels perfectly strange. Although the universe of After Blue is created in broad strokes, the movie successfully piques interest. Mandico is unmistakably imagining a twisted Garden of Eden, where unbridled desire and the yearning for order collide. The film's narrative and on-going narration help keep the viewer connected to the universe so they don't get lost as the character evolves and the world keeps expanding, even as the director delightfully experiments with creating a very abstract reality of a planet populated by women. There is a very fine balance at play in this situation.
