One of the crowning achievements of the ‘Cinema du look’ movement, Carax’s tale of two damaged, homeless souls finding love on the closed off Pont-Neuf bridge is an absolutely enchanting, timeless piece of cinema. Cleverly packed with cinematic influence, reference, parody, and tribute, and featuring outstanding performances from Denis Lavant and Juliette Binoche, Carax’s fraught labour of love was three years in the making, and slowly became the most expensive French film of its time. It was worth every franc.
