Mauvais Sang

Directed by Leos Carax | Written by Leos Carax
Marc and Hans, two old gangsters, plan to steal the vaccine for a mysterious virus, STBO, which
affects those who make love without being in love and is wreaking havoc among teenagers. After the death of their associate Jean, the two accomplices call on his son, Alex, known as "Chatterbox", who is a talented conjuror. Alex, who has just left his girlfriend Lise, falls madly in love with a girl in a white dress he sees on a bus. Her names is Anna and she turns out to be Marc's mistress...
Leos Carax's second movie, Mauvais Sang is a stunning masterpiece, midway between a thriller and a romantic tale, which multiplies references to master filmmakers (Godard in particular) and seduces with its poetry and lyricism. This emblematic film of 80s French cinema established Leos Carax as one of its most talented directors, twenty-six years before Holy Motors. Starring Denis Lavant, Michel Piccoli, and Juliette Binoche, Mauvais Sang is available for the first time in a stunning new HD digital restoration.
