Cannes: Holy Motors breakdown

Text size Aa Aa

Kylie, the world’s best-loved soap star turned songstress was in Cannes this week, alongside Eva Mendes, to promote Holy Motors by controversial French director Leos Carax. The film has been dubbed the weirdest of this year’s crop.

Talking about the plot and meaning of the film, Leos Carax said: “I don’t know who is the public. All I know, it’s a bunch of people who will be dead very soon. I don’t make public films, I make private films, and I invite whoever wants to come and see it.”

The plot concerns Kylie’s character, who spends the film contemplating suicide and another character called Mr Oscar who spends all day pretending to be different people according to anonymous orders left in his stretch limo. At the end of the day he goes home to his family, who are all monkeys.

So far in Cannes, no-one has actually claimed to understand the film although everyone is talking about it. Half the crowd hate it, the other half love it. The only thing everyone is agreed on is that it’s completely barmy.
