Leos Carax directs Juliette Binoche, Denis Lavant and Julie Delpy in this crime fantasy where a pickpocket must help steal a cure for a love disease.
God! Carax is pretentious. His stories get lost in an aimless haphazardness. There are one or two wonderful set-pieces; a parachute jump, a night time run to David Bowie. But there just ain’t any focus. I’m starting to think either The Lovers On The Bridge was a fluke or I shouldn’t try and revisit that either.
