Synopsis

Leos Carax’s brilliant feature debut follows the relationship of an aspiring filmmaker (Denis Lavant), who has just been left by his lover and a suicidal young woman (Mireille Perrier), who is also reeling from a failed romance.

Our take

Citizen Kane, Hiroshima, mon amour, 400 Blows: rare first films that seem to come to us fully formed, of shocking vision and freshness. The dizzyingly romantic debut film of Léos Carax is just that: the birth of a radically new cinema that was sensitive to the old yet embarks on its own unique path.
