The Judas Kiss is a film without dialogue, telling its story solely through images and haunting music.
What sound does a heart make when it cracks?
Is there any music that can replicate it?
Chris goes to the club with his boyfriend, Jude. It’s just another Saturday night out – a few drinks, some laughs, a workout on the dance floor.
But it’s not just another Saturday night.
It’s a night Chris will never be able to forget.
The Judas Kiss tells its story entirely through images, without the help of dialogue.
The story bounces back and forth in time as Chris’s emotional response to the events of the night unravels. The film is bound together by the sublime music of Handel – the aria, Scherza infida, unforgettably sung by one of the great singers of our time, the American counter-tenor, David Daniels, accompanied by the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.
Why Handel? Hearts broke in the eighteenth century, just as hearts break now.
The sound remains the same.
