The Flicks Community Movie House
French director Leos Carax’s Holy Motors delivers a pure cinematic experience designed to confront and challenge our understanding of the art form at every level. You’ll follow a day in the life of Monsieur Oscar being driven around Paris in a white stretch limo by Céline (his driver and secretary), who ferries him around from one ‘appointment’ to another. To get full enjoyment from this film stop here and watch it. Anything else you read may spoil or confuse and may not be entirely accurate.
Throughout the film he changes his character about ten times to be different people, these include an old beggar woman, a powerful business man, a dying millionaire, a murderer, a kidnapper, a CGI snake, an angry uncle and husband to a chimp family.
This is essentially an art-house film, but unlike unlike other such films this is full of comedy, some subtle and some proper laugh-out-loud moments. Meaning it never takes itself too seriously and never talks down to the audience. The audience is definitely a needed extension to this film, especially if you allow yourself to be drawn in and experience the journey.
Also starring Kylie Minogue and Eva Mendez.
