French filmmaker Léos Carax has a masterful knack for exploring the mature facets of love and pain. After ~13 years since his last controversial piece Pola X, Carax delivers his latest feature length drama entitled Holy Motors. The plot revolves around a man and the multiple identities he slips into during a one day cycle. Can’t wait to watch this one! More story details as follows (via Wild Bunch):
“From dawn to dusk, a few hours in the life of Monsieur Oscar, a shadowy character who journeys from one life to the next. He is, in turn, captain of industry, assassin, beggar, monster, family man…
He seems to be playing roles, plunging headlong into each part – but where are the cameras?
Monsieur Oscar is alone, accompanied only by Céline, the slender blonde woman behind the wheel of the vast engine that transports him through and around Paris. He¹s like a conscientious assassin moving from hit to hit.
In pursuit of the beautiful gesture, the mysterious driving force, the women and the ghosts of past lives.
But where is his true home, his family, his rest?”
