About the Piercing 💬

  • What's the nastiest thing you've ever done?

Reed (Christopher Abbott) kisses his wife and baby goodbye, seemingly headed away on business. But instead of clothes, he's packed a murder kit. Reed checks himself into a hotel room to accomplish something he's always dreamed of: the perfect murder.

He's planned everything meticulously: he'll check into a hotel, call an escort service, and kill an unsuspecting prostitute. Only then will he rid himself of his murderous urges. But Reed's plan could not account for Jackie (Mia Wasikowska), the alluring and mysterious call girl who arrives at his room. When an unexpected incident occurs, Reed and Jackie find themselves in a pulsating game of cat-and-mouse. Has he been found out? Is this all just some strange game? Or are they falling in love? As the night progresses, Reed starts to lose control. Before the night is over, a feverish nightmare will unfold, and the pair will seal their bond in blood.


PIERCING has been described by Pesce as a cat-and-mouse game in which ''the mouse becomes the cat and the cat becomes the mouse.''. Pesce calls PIERCING, based on the eponymous novel by Ryû Murakami from 1994, 'a pitch-black romantic comedy'. ''It's a twisted love story. However violent it is, it is mostly funny.'' PIERCING is Nicolas Pesce's second feature after his debut with the film The Eyes of My Mother in 2016.

''I discovered Murakami's work after seeing Takashi Miike's film Audition which is also an adaptation of a Murakami novel. I loved the tone, and the style of storytelling and the book felt ripe for a film adaptation.''
