DIRECTOR: LéOS CARAX

CAST: MICHEL PICCOLI, JULIETTE BINOCHE, DENIS LAVANT, JULIE DELPY

This genre-bending explosion of pure cinematic effervescence stars a young Denis Lavant, whose propulsive, thrashing dance to David Bowie’s “Modern Love” is surely one of the most exhilarating passages in all of French cinema. Indebted to both the rebellious spirit of the Nouvelle Vague and the swooning Romanticism of Frank Borzage, Carax’s film pits young lovers against crusty old gangsters, with a stolen virus hanging in the balance—the relevance to the then-raging AIDS crisis is not coincidental.
