(!986) The Night Is Young/ Mauvais sang
(In French with English subtitles)
PSYCHOLOGICAL DRAMA/ ART HOUSE
An unknown man gets killed while waiting for the subway, we don't really know who he is nor quite know why he was killed. As it turns out, he happens to be one of the two people of a group who owed this lady a lot of money which Marc (Michel Piccoli)was only given only two weeks to repay all that money back as well as pay for his partners as well. This father who was killed also happens to have a son named Alex (Denis Lavant), and they recruit him for his father's place to steal some chemical vials. This little scenario serves no purpose but a backdrop to the many pointless advance scenes of Alex toward a young Anna(Juliette Binoche) since she's already in love with Marc who's like 70 year old. Written and directed by Leos Carax who's Influenced by Jean Luc Godard which there's a lot of meanderings and to me that's dull and boring. Julie Delpy also stars in this as Alex's girlfriend Lise.

Tengo que confesar, que mientras veía la película no la entendí mucho, las escenas no tenían una continuidad, y había simbolismos por todas partes, pero me costó comprender lo que pasaba. Hasta que leí la sipnosis, es cuando todo empezó a tener sentido. La fotografía es hermosa y hay unas escenas que me quitaron el aliento. Los colores también le dieron a la película un toque especial.
