Directed by Leos Carax and released in it’s home country of France in 1991.
The most unconventional of love stories. Denis Lavant is a terrific actor whose talents never go outshone and the same goes for Juliette Binoche. The camera flows so beautifully across this bridge on which our two primary characters spend the majority of the film. The editing is so spontaneous, something I always love in a film as such as this that features elongated scenes without music but the score itself is also enjoyable aswell as quite spontaneous.
So, Leos Carax’s style of filmmaking is what really does it for me and having only seen this, Holy Motors, a short entitled Sans Titre and a segment in the film Tokyo! I am very eager to explore more of his films. I can only imagine that this and Holy Motors are both excellent entré’s into his work.
