"Leos Carax returns to cinema after a 13-year hiatus with HOLY MOTORS, a brilliant, visually striking film that was one of the toasts of this year's Cannes Film Festival. Apparently inspired by the filmmaker's fascination with the after hours life of stretch limousines, Denis Lavant plays Monsieur Oscar who, over the course of a single day, takes on 10 other guises, ranging from a gangster and ageing millionaire to a troubled parent and anarchic tramp. With impressive cameos by Eva Mendes and Kylie Minogue, HOLY MOTORS is the rarest of things - a true original." -- cover
