Leos Carax directs Denis Lavant, Mireille Perrier and Caroll Brooks in this Black & White French indie where a broken hearted boy and a suicidal girl wander the streets of Paris, occasionally recreating shots from movie romances past.
A pretentious calling card. If you asked 12 year old me whether I wanted to watch more Leos Carax movies after experiencing only Lovers On The New Bridge then my answer would have been an emphatic “Yes!” Now I’m actually catching up in my forties the relentless strange over confidence bores me to tears. Good soundtrack.
