French movie ‘Holy Motors screens in Nenagh on this Thursday 7th March

French film director Leos Carax’s dreamlike movie ‘Holy Motors’ will be screened in Nenagh on Thursday, 7th March in Nenagh Arts Centre.

The film follows the travels of the mysterious Monsieur Oscar from dawn till dusk as we are taken on a dreamlike limousine ride through the streets of Paris. Oscar (Denis Lavant) adopts a series of diverse personae whom he takes on a sequence of surreal adventures. He becomes a Quasimodo-like figure stowing a beautiful model away in his sewer layer, then in the blink of an eye he becomes an old gypsy crone begging by the Seine, then a ninja warrior metamorphosing into a reptilian god. This film is a wild and  feverish flight of imagination and is compiled beautifully by the acclaimed Carax, who in the past has directed the classic ‘Les Amants des Pont Neuf’.

 

The written word can never do full justice to the film – ‘Holy Motors’ is a feast for the eyes that needs to be seen to be believed! The film is certified for 16 years or older and screens in the Arts Centre on Thursday, 7th March at 8 p.m. Admission is €7 on the door.
