We have an exclusive US poster for the upcoming Holy Motors movie which comes from director Leos Carax and is set to open this month. Check out the left (your left) corner of the poster and you’ll find this description: wholly mysterious & impossibly lovely, this mad hatter’s monsterpiece may be the best film of the year. Really?
Guess we’ll have to wait for the reactions until October 17th, 2012, when this movie is set to open. In the meanwhile, I will remind you that Holy Motors has quite interesting cast on board, which includes Eva Mendes, Kylie Minogue, Denis Lavant and Edith Scob.
The movie centers on Monsieur Oscar (Lavant), a shadowy character who journeys from one life to the next. He is, in turn, captain of industry, assassin, beggar, monster, family man… He seems to be playing roles, plunging headlong into each part – but where are the cameras?
Monsieur Oscar is alone, accompanied only by Céline (Scob), the slender blonde woman behind the wheel of the vast engine that transports him through and around Paris.
He’s like a conscientious assassin moving from hit to hit. In pursuit of the beautiful gesture, the mysterious driving force, the women and the ghosts of past lives.
But where is his true home, his family, his rest?
We’ll find that out in less than two weeks!
