“Nothing makes ‘sense’ in this crazy-beautiful reverie about movies, love and the love of movies...[a]nd yet everything is exactly as it should be.” -- Entertainment Weekly
Joyous, hilarious, and otherworldly are but a few ways to describe this liquid narrative from Leos Carax: creator of LOVERS ON THE BRIDGE, BOY MEETS GIRL, MAUVAIS SANG and POLA X.
In the performance(s) of a lifetime, regular Carax collaborator Denis Lavant is an amorphous Actor on a chameleonic mission to inhabit a variety of public roles: a bag lady, an assassin, a sewer-dwelling freakazoid, a heated lover and much more. Chauffeured around Paris by Edith Scob (EYES WITHOUT A FACE), Lavant commits to each character so thoroughly, and engages you so quickly with each swap that it’s impossible to predict what comes next. Essential 21st-century viewing.
