Ozon's THE NEW GIRLFRIEND Heats Up To Red-Band In New Trailer
A new red-band (NSFW) trailer for Francois Ozon's The New Girlfriend take a subtly erotic approach, baring a little more flesh and turning up the heat exponentially. 

Our own Kwenton Bellette saw it at the French Film Festival in Australia back in March: 

Billing itself as a psychological drama, the film follows married woman Claire (the extremely talented Anais Demoustier) who has lost her lifelong friend too early. A chance encounter one day reveals something shocking about her friend's widower, and Claire's passion for life and her refusal to accept her friend's death are driven to unpredictable obsession.

It is quickly revealed that aforementioned widower David (Romain Duris) is a cross-dresser. When Claire sees him in her dead friend's clothes she initially dismisses him as deranged and sick. Days pass and the temptation of having her friend in no matter the context eats away at her, as her supporting husband is clueless to what is happening.

He concluded: 

While there are some heavy themes throughout, Ozon has ensured that The New Girlfriend is a comedy melodrama. It is serious, but also heightened and aware of itself, working directly as a strength as this excellent work from the auteur is a completely unpretentious and provocative tale that does not overstay its welcome.

Thomas Humphrey conducted an interview with Ozon and Duris for us in May, and you can check that out here. The film opens in the U.S. on September 18. You can watch the trailer below, but you may want to keep a glass of ice water nearby to cool off after you do
