The director's slight uncertainty creates a fascinating tension that works in Boy Meets Girl's favor. You empathize with the characters' struggles even as they are both kept at a critical distance.

Leo Carax's first film seizes on a particular element of intellectualized youthful ennui with uncommon clarity and ferocity.

[VIDEO ESSAY] "Boy Meets Girl" is a passionate cinematic work that echoes the brilliant dramatic effects Leos Carax has achieved with his other films ("The Night is Young," "The Lovers on the Bridge," "Pola X," and "Holy Motors").
