Watch The Intriguing and Bizarre Trailer For “Holy Motors”

A critical sensation when it screened at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival and at Fantastic Fest 2012, HOLY MOTORS stars Denis Lavant, Edith Scob, Kylie Minogue and Eva Mendes in a film that will surely emerge as one of the wildest cinematic visions of the year.  Check out the synopsis below and then watch the trailer to get whisked away into the bizarre world of Monsieur Oscar.

Over the course of a single day, Monsieur Oscar travels by limousine around Paris to a series of nine “appointments,” transforming into new characters or incarnations at each stop.  Fetched in the morning by Céline, his trusty chauffeur on this surreal journey, Oscar begins the day as a captain of industry.  Then he becomes a gypsy crone, begging for spare change on a bridge over the Seine.  Inside a digital production facility, heʼs a ninja warrior transformed by cutting edge technology into a reptilian sex god.

Next heʼs a gibberish-spewing troglodyte who kidnaps a fashion model from a photo shoot in Père-Lachaise cemetery, ferrying her to his underground lair in the sewers.  Then heʼs the melancholy father of a teenage daughter, followed by a shadowy assassin sent to kill his own doppelgänger, a dying old man, and finally a thwarted lover revisiting a flame from his past atop a decaying Right Bank department store next to the Pont-Neuf.

Monster movie, film noir, romantic drama, musical, crime thriller, futuristic sex fantasia… HOLY MOTORS is all of these and, then again, none of these.  It is a ravishing, shape-shifting, fever dream of becoming, unraveling and starting all over again.  From celluloid magic to the digital data stream, Monsieur Oscarʼs epic journey of the soul is all of our dreams.
