showtimes and tickets

Marc and Hans, two old gangsters, are ordered by a rival, the American woman, to repay a debt. They plan to steal the vaccine for a mysterious virus, STBO, which affects those who make love without being in love and is wreaking havoc among teenagers. After the death of their associate Jean, the two accomplices call on his son, Alex, known as "Chatterbox", who is a talented conjuror. Alex, who has just left his girlfriend Lise, falls madly in love with a girl in a white dress he sees on a bus. Her name is Anna and she turns out to be Marc's mistress...

"Carax's gorgeous, movie-mad tribute! Film noir fatalism nuzzles next to Murnau-like silent vignettes and slapstick shaving-cream fights. After watching Lavant execute a cartwheel with Gene Kelly-worthy grace to "Modern Love," you will never think of the Bowie song the same way again."
– David Fear, Time Out New York

"Go to see a cinematic quartet of now-famous artists in their infancy; stay for the exhilarating film they create."
– John Oursler, The L Magazine
