This cinematic fever-dream is a deliriously entertaining and defiantly strange journey of the soul that careens through the streets of Paris exuding comedy, mystery, romance, intrigue and melodrama. Holy Motors is a love letter to both the City of Lights and the flickering lights of movie magic through the years, as embodied by one of the most mischievously original screen protagonists in memory.
“FIVE STARS! Weird and wonderful, rich and strange – barking mad, in fact. It is wayward, kaleidoscopic, black comic and bizarre; there is in it a batsqueak of genius, dishevelment and derangement; it is captivating and compelling.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian”
