An intense and impressively acted erotic thriller with a decidedly female gaze

When experienced psychologist Nicoline starts a new job at a rehabilitation center, she is introduced to the handsome and charismatic serial rapist Idris. Firmly convinced that Idris is not fit to be released, she nonetheless develops a fascination that goes beyond mere professional interest. Soon the two of them are engaged in a high-stakes game of seduction and manipulation. Featuring an impressive performance by Carice van Houten in the lead role, INSTINCT is an intense and intelligent erotic thriller in the tradition of Paul Verhoeven.
