Holy Motors: A Conversation That Doesn't Use Just Words

If you don't like "weird", then by all means stay away from this film. If you don't mind going out on a limb, you will discover an alternate universe full of mystery and surprises. By no means a masterpiece, it is more like an adventure full of weird, weird, weird weirdness and beauty beauty and more beauty if you know what I mean.

Denis Lavant plays a multitude of characters, each time completely transforming himself.  Great supporting performances by young actresses Elise Lhomeau and Jeanne Disson (who looks like a young Charlotte Gainsbourg).

Take a chance on this bizarre work.
