The Night is Young

Mauvais Sang

Stylish and colourful 80s crime story starring Juliette Binoche.

Image from The Night is Young

France 1986
Dir Leos Carax
With Juliette Binoche, Denis Lavant, Michel Piccoli
English subtitles
Certificate 15

A stylish example of 1980s cinéma du look, Carax’s film unfolds in splendid images in primary colours, in which Binoche’s face, shot from all possible angles, occupies a central place. The story is one of crime – concerning a serum for a deadly disease – and youthful amour fou.

Bassam & Riz: My heart leaps from one scene to the next. Every scene inventive, a revelation. The marrying of music, movement, comedy, love, tragedy.
