Eight years after his monumental ode to all-consuming love, The Lovers on the Bridge, Leos Carax resurfaced with this bold drama based on Herman Melville's Pierre. For the first time in Carax''s four features, it is not Denis Lavant as "Alex," but Guillaume Depardieu (son of Gerard) as Pierre who takes center stage. Living with his mother (Catherine Deneuve) in a nearl y incestuous relationship, wealthy Pierre decides he must throw off the shackle s of his privileged life when he discovers he has a half-sister, hidden from hi m and living in poverty. His obsession with her turns into a sexual relationshi p and the course of his life begins to veer toward madness. "...moody, rapturous...visually convulsive" (J. Hoberman, The Village Voice). In Leos Carax---France---1999---134 mins.
