Story


A sex-addicted French financier, a fateful hotel room encounter, and a scandal that would rock the world: the mighty Gerard Depardieu gives a fearless performance in this ripped-from-the-headlines saga of sin and sleaze from boundary-pushing director Abel Ferrara (Bad Lieutenant, Ms. 45). Inspired by one of the most high-profile public implosions in recent memory, Welcome to New York follows a prominent international banker (Depardieu) as he spirals out of control during a drug and sex-fueled trip to America-culminating in a shocking incident involving a hotel maid and his subsequent arrest. Jacqueline Bisset co-stars in this provocative portrait of a man whose fall from grace sent shockwaves throughout the world.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Welcome to New York has the brutal courage of its convictions. It sets out to show a monster, and it succeeds..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
“..it may be ageing provocateur Abel Ferrara's best film since King Of New York, but the film belongs to Depardieu. Like that painting of Kramer in Seinfeld, he is a loathsome, offensive brute, yet you can't look away..”
by David Hughes [Empire Magazine]
