Less concerned with the machinations of his gangster film plot than bouncing the audience along an unending, uncoiling chain of blissful genre “moments”, Carax-as-puppetmaster glides us along the near-future story of a teenage hoodlum tasked with stealing the vaccine for an AIDS-like romantic malady, and afflicted with a deadly attraction to his employer’s young girlfriend. The cast is super-strong (Denis Lavant, Juliette Binoche, Julie Delpy, Michel Piccoli), and Carax’s visual vocabulary is even stronger, with an infectious zeal for the filmmaking process itself pouring forth from every single perfectly-framed shot. This is the Carax who is later felt in the even-more impossible heights of Holy Motors, and this is the Carax who rightfully earned his place as one of France’s greatest emerging talents of the Eighties.   X-ALT-DESC:
