MUST END Thursday, January 17th!
Digital presentation - Over the course of a single day, Monsieur Oscar (Denis Lavant) travels by limousine around Paris to a series of nine "appointments," transforming into new characters or incarnations at each stop. Fetched in the morning by Céline (Edith Scob, Eyes Without a Face), his trusty chauffeur on this surreal journey, Oscar begins the day as a captain of industry. Then he becomes a gypsy crone, begging for spare change on a bridge over the Seine. Inside a digital production facility, he's a ninja warrior transformed by cutting-edge technology into a reptilian sex god. Next he's a gibberish-spewing troglodyte who kidnaps a fashion model from a photo shoot in Père Lachaise cemetery. Then he's the melancholy father of a teenage daughter, followed by a shadowy assassin sent to kill his own doppelgänger, and finally a thwarted lover revisiting a flame from his past next to the Pont-Neuf. Monster movie, film noir, romantic drama, musical, crime thriller, futuristic sex fantasia... Holy Motors is a ravishing, shape-shifting, fever dream of becoming, unraveling and starting all over again. Co-starring Kylie Minogue, Eva Mendes and Michel Piccoli. Written and directed by Leos Carax (Pola X, Lovers on the Bridge).
