…is a french fantasy film directed by Leos Carax (Suresnes, Hauts-de-Seine, France)
A lot of people walked out midway and ridiculed the film. In fairness, I can see why.
It is pretty ridiculous if we’re looking at the standard story arc but, to me, it broke plenty of rules in all the right ways.
The cinematography is amazing. I feel like you can literally take each frame from the movie and slap it on a couture and/or art magazine.
Everything and everyone we encounter in our entire lives become an integral part of who we are. We live different paradigms of life everyday.
This was about a man whose job is to literally live different paradigms of life each day (9 in this movie, to be exact)… and given the different kinds of headspaces we all get into in a day, sometimes within an hour, or a minute, even seconds – I’d say there’s nothing out of the ordinary, in terms of the premise, at all.
I discovered this at the Toronto International Film Festival several years back.
