Holy motors by Léos Carax( Visual )

41 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leos Carax returns to cinema after a 13-year hiatus with HOLY MOTORS, a brilliant, visually striking film that was one of the toasts of this year's Cannes Film Festival. Apparently inspired by the filmmaker's fascination with the after hours life of stretch limousines, Denis Lavant plays Monsieur Oscar who, over the course of a single day, takes on 10 other guises, ranging from a gangster and ageing millionaire to a troubled parent and anarchic tramp. With impressive cameos by Eva Mendes and Kylie Minogue, HOLY MOTORS is the rarest of things - a true original." -- cover

"Leos Carax's brilliant feature debut, fully restored and remastered, follows the faltering relationship of an aspiring filmmaker (Denis Lavant - Holy Motors) and a suicidal young woman (Mireille Perrier). Using bold, mesmeric black-and- white imagery to stunning effect, Boy Meets Girl is a blend of black humour and gentle romance that heralded Carax's luminous career." -- cover

Disc 2: The night is young [Mauvais sang]. "Fulfilling his early promise as one of the most gifted filmmakers of his generation, Carax's inventive second film brilliantly meshes a tale of young love with elements of science fiction thriller. Denis Lavant plays Alex, a young punk who becomes involved with a veteran criminal gang plotting to steal a serum that cures a disease that is killing lovers. But when Alex falls for Anna (Juliette Binoche), the mistress of the group's leader (Michel Piccoli), matters begin to get complicated. Darkly humorous, visuall stunning and uniquely stylish, 'The Night is Young' pays inaginative homage to Carax's influences and is one of the most remarkable French films of the early '80s."--Container (114 mins.)
