"A stunning film, Leos Carax's best to date, and a welcome – and long overdue – return. Anyone who loves French auteur cinema is in for a treat. This enigmatic film explores fragmented identity and role-playing in a way that is frequently surprising and always intelligent and entertaining. Denis Lavant gives a shape-shifting performance the likes of which we have not seen in cinema since the days of Alec Guinness and Peter Sellers. Let's hope we won't have to wait another 13 years for Carax's next feature-length film!"
