ABOUT THE FILMS

 

POLA X, 1999, Arena Films, 134 min. Dir. Leos Carax

Inspired by Herman Melville’s novel Pierre, or the Ambiguities, Leos Carax’s POLA X is a mournful epic of forbidden love. Guillaume Depardieu stars as a young novelist blessed with critical success and an adoring mother (Catherine Deneuve). His fate turns when he meets a feral young woman (Katerina Golubeva), who claims to be his long-lost sister and seduces him into the shadows.

BOY MEETS GIRL, 1984, Kino Lorber 104 min. Dir. Leos Carax

Leos Carax’s first feature, which he made at 23, helped kick-start the Young French Cinema of the 1980s and ’90s. Denis Lavant stars as an aimless young cineaste, who spends his time thinking up titles for films he hasn’t made until he falls in love with the voice of a woman (Mireille Perrier) on an apartment intercom system.

FORMAT: DCP
