Jean-Hugues Anglade, Béatrice Dalle, Gérard Darmon / Fiction / French

Jean-Jacques Beineix' iconic fractured love story.

Crucially harnessing the wild, rebellious energy of his then unknown leading lady, Beatrice Dalle, to spectacular effect, and perfectly pairing her with the wonderful Jean-Hugues Anglade (Subway, Nikita), Beineix raises the ‘Cinema du look’ temperature, slowly blurring passionate romance into hard drama and ultimately, bleak tragedy against a cynically bright, pastel coloured backdrop. Adapted from a novel by Philippe Djian, Beineix’s intense, fractured love story became an international success, and went on to represent France in the Best Foreign Language Film section at the 1987 Academy Awards.
