Word of caution to ticket buyers: Some of you may find this surrealist film to be the most exhilarating, captivating film you have seen all year, while others may find it too weird and confounding, or be put off by scenes containing violence and nudity.

A New York Times critics’ pick.
Awarded Best Foreign Film of 2012, Los Angeles Film Critics Association.
Join Monsieur Oscar on his rollicking, soulful journey by limousine through the streets of Paris as he transforms into multiple characters for a series of mysterious “appointments”. Melding monster movie, film noir, romantic drama, musical, crime thriller, anime, Leos Carax’s mirthful, mind-bending masterwork is a ravishing fever dream of becoming, unravelling and starting all over again.
“FIVE STARS! Weird and wonderful, rich and strange – barking mad, in fact. It is wayward, kaleidoscopic, black comic and bizarre; there is in it a batsqueak of genius, dishevelment and derangement; it is captivating and compelling.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
“Leos Carax’s unholy odyssey into the dreamy marvels of cinema itself is an exhilarating hybrid of comedy, melodrama, science fiction, crime thriller, and musical romance. Wholly mysterious and impossibly lovely, this mad hatter’s monsterpiece may be the best film of the year.” – Aaron Hillis, The Village Voice
“A combustible roman candle of a film. Exhilarating, opaque, heartbreaking and completely bonkers… a deliciously preposterous piece of filmmaking that appraises life and death and everything in between, reflected in a funhouse mirror.” – Megan Lehmann, The Hollywood Reporter
Language: French (English subtitles)
