Holy Motors

An unforgettable visual feast, and a spellbinding narrative

“Leos Carax, the writer/director of this wondrous and wicked film, goes his own artful way with a talent that makes its own rules.
“Holy Motors swept me up in its surreal landscape of film genres by the sheer force of Carax's devotion to cinema. The great Denis Lavant, an actor of shimmering physical grace, takes on a dozen roles, male and female. As Monsieur Oscar, Lavant begins his work in Paris by climbing into a white stretch limo chauffeured by loyal Celine. Each stop will require Oscar, with the help of wardrobe and makeup in the back seat, to transform himself into a variety of characters – a tycoon, a gypsy beggar, a ninja warrior. You get the picture. Even if you don't, you'll be transported by Lavant as Monsieur Merde, a sewer troll who kidnaps a model (Eva Mendes) from a fashion shoot in Pere-Lachaise cemetery, or as an assassin sent to kill his own double, or a man reunited with a former amour (pop star Kylie Minogue) in a deserted department store that becomes the setting for a musical interlude of surpassing loveliness.
“Don't be afraid to leap into the wild blue of Carax's untamable imagination. Holy Motors, fueled by pure feeling, is a dream of a movie you want to get lost in. It's a thing of beauty.”
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
