Here is the first trailer for Leo Carax' Holy Motors, which stars Denis Lavant, Eva Mendes and singer Kylie Minogue. The film follows the mysterious Monsieur Oscar during a 24 hours in the day as he travels between different lives ranging from a murderer to a corporate executive to a monstrous creature. The film premiered at Cannes this past week and has been getting positive reviews.
Here's the full synopsis from the Cannes website:
From dawn to dusk, a few hours in the life of Monsieur Oscar, a shadowy character who journeys from one life to the next. He is, in turn, captain of industry, assassin, beggar, monster, family man... He seems to be playing roles, plunging headlong into each part - but where are the cameras? Monsieur Oscar is alone, accompanied only by Céline, the slender blonde woman behind the wheel of the vast engine that transports him through and around Paris. He’s like a conscientious assassin moving from hit to hit. In pursuit of the beautiful gesture, the mysterious driving force, the women and the ghosts of past lives. But where is his true home, his family, his rest?

This looks like an interesting movie, and definitely has an ecclectic cast. I am not sure this is my type of movie. Do you think this is a movie you would like to see?
