L'intrus (English: The Intruder) is a feature film written and directed by Claire Denis, based upon the autobiographical essay by philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy. The film premiered in the official competition at the 2004 Venice Film Festival.


Louis Trebor (Michel Subor), an ex-mercenary living in the Jura Mountains, is increasingly suffering from a heart condition. He abandons his home, his beloved dogs, and his estranged son (Grégoire Colin) in pursuit of a black market heart transplant in Korea before traveling to Tahiti, where he spent time in his youth, in hopes of reconnecting with a son he's never met.



The film placed at No. 77 of best films of the 2000s, by Slant Magazine.[1]
