Critic Reviews for Mauvais Sang
A masterpiece of ecstatic cinema from 1986, directed by Leos Carax at the age of twenty-five.
Alex and Anna's interactions are the enchanted heart - volleying between sequences of the two at play and ones that emphasize their loneliness and disconnection.
The easiest way to find entry into the film is to accede to its reveries, even if they only temporarily make sense, and to welcome and possibly celebrate its shifting tones and techniques.
Carax does not want to tell you a story. He wants to express, in the purest way he can, his infatuation with storytelling through images and genre conventions, performance and voyeurism, cinema and cinephilia.
A salute, at once moody and ebullient, to the cinema of the past and the ferocious intensity of youth.
Audience Reviews for Mauvais Sang
What is most memorable in this lyrical film about unrequited young love is Carax's stylish direction together with a sublime cinematography and production design, even though he overdoes it sometimes and would only be en pointe with his approach in his following oeuvre.
Very stylish, beautifully shot romantic drama. Though I wasn't a fan of the lead actor, there were a couple of scenes in here that were so cool they made my hair stand up. The deep conversations about love were thoughtful too. I say, why not, give it a try.
