Boy Meets Girl

Available on MUBI, Prime Video, iTunes
This highly acclaimed first feature by wunderkind filmmaker Leos Carax (he was only 22 at the time) is an unconventional, moody tone poem that centers on a young man cruising the dark side of Paris. Having just split with his lover, the young man, Alex (Denis Lavant), is depressed and, happening upon a party, decides to crash it. There he meets an aging actress who has also just left her lover, and the two begin a complex relationship that grants them a temporary reprieve from the cruelties of everyday existence.
