Leos Carax’s debut feature also became his breakthrough onto the big screen. The black-and-white picture about two Paris dreamers is considered to be the first notable work by the author of Les Amants du Pont-Neuf and Holy Motors.
Two people meet in Paris: one of them is Alex, who has been ditched by his girlfriend and dreams of making movies, the other—Mireille—has failed to become an actress and now contemplates committing suicide, while drifting through the city. This debut of Leon Carax is an intimate and rebellious film about love, great ambitions, and devastating defeats.
