"Elf Episoden aus dem Leben von Monsieur Oscar, der von Sonnenaufgang bis Sonnenuntergang in einer weißen Stretch-Limousine durch Paris chauffiert wird und dabei jeweils in eine andere Existenz schlüpft [...]. Der hochenergetische Film bietet ein vom Hauptdarsteller Denis Lavant mit beängstigender Präsenz gemeistertes Stakkato voller Einfälle und cinephiler Anspielungen. Er strotzt vor visueller Kraft und Energie und lässt sich als hypnotisch-grotesker Versuch über das Menschsein an der Grenze zu Verfall und Tod interpretieren." [film-dienst.de]

Angeödet von der Welt, lebt der 28-jährige Feuerschlucker Alex (Denis Lavant) als Clochard auf dem von 1989 bis 1991 wegen Renovierung geschlossenen Pont Neuf, der ältesten Brücke von Paris. Dort schläft eines Nachts auch die vier Jahre jüngere Offizierstochter Michele Stelens (Juliette Binoche), die sich aufgegeben hat, weil sie wegen einer Augenerkrankung nicht mehr malen kann. Ein Auge hat sie verbunden, und mit dem anderen sieht sie immer schlechter. In der Mappe, die sie bei sich hat, entdeckt Alex eine Zeichnung von sich: Offenbar beobachtete ihn Michele, als er mit gebrochenem Knöchel auf der Straße lag. Auf dem Pont Neuf hat der alte Penner Hans (Klaus-Michael Grüber) das Sagen. Er vertreibt das Mädchen. Alex läuft ihr nach und fragt sie nach der Zeichnung. Als Gegenleistung verlangt Michele, dass er am Seineufer Modell für ein Porträt sitzt. Doch bevor die Zeichnung fertig ist, verliert sie das Bewusstsein. Alex bringt sie wieder auf die Brücke und überredet den Alten, sie ein paar Tage lang zu dulden, damit sie sich erholen kann. Hans verlangt allerdings, dass ihm das Mädchen nicht unter die Augen kommt und keinen Alkohol trinkt
