117min. Directed by Jean-Jacques Beineix.
Starring Wilhelmenia Fernandez, Frédéric Andréi, Richard Bohringer
Marvelous combination of madcap thriller and fairytale romance, drawing on a wild diversity of genres from film noir to Feuillade serial. The deliriously offhand plot, cheekily parodying Watergate and THE FRENCH CONNECTION, has switched tapes setting a pair of psychopathic hoods on the trail of a young postal messenger, turning his obsessive dream -- of romance with a beautiful black opera singer whose performance on stage he has secretly recorded -- into a nightmare. It is unified by the extraordinary decor – chic color meets pop art surrealism -- which creates a world of totally fantastic reality situated four-square in contemporary Paris. Directed by Jean-Jacques Beineix, who subsequently made BETTY BLUE and THE MOON IN THE GUTTER.
Presented as part of the Summer in Paris film series. Individual tickets $9. A Season Pass is available in person at the cinema. $36 for all 8 films.
