The Night is Young
Stylish and colourful 80s crime story starring Juliette Binoche.
Dir Leos Carax
With Juliette Binoche, Denis Lavant, Michel Piccoli
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.
