DIRECTOR: LéOS CARAX

Returning to feature filmmaking after a thirteen-year hiatus, Carax re-teamed with actor Denis Lavant, who here plays a mystery man, Oscar, chauffeured by driver Céline (the legendary Edith Scob) to assignations throughout Paris in a white stretch limo, at each appointment taking on a different role—a street beggar, a motion capture suit performer, and the anarchic, carrot-topped Monsieur Merde of Carax’s contribution to the anthology film Tokyo! (2008). Number one in best-of-the-year polls from both Film Comment and Cahiers du cinéma, its an enrapturing rumination on the nature of performance and movie magic, an inexhaustibly mysterious work that, rich with film historical allusions, points the way to the medium’s future.
