France | 1984 | col | dir. Léos Carax, with Denis Lavant, Mireille Perrier, Caroll Brooks, Ellie Poicard, Maité Nahyr

Shy young Alex walks the dark Parisian streets gazing in confusion at the passers-by. Meanwhile Mireille is given the brush-off by her live-in lover. Eventually their paths cross, as if by destiny. Numerous other loners also wander in and out of this meandering, moody narrative. His first feature film, Léos Carax’s atmospheric meditation on the failings of human intercourse was the revelation of the 1984 Cannes Film Festival.
