'Holy Motors' coming to UK Blu and DVD from Artificial Eye

The latest film from writer/director Leos Carax, who incidentally directed one of my all-time favorites movies with Les Amants du Pont Neuf, is all set for a Blu-ray and DVD release from Artificial Eye in the UK. Holy Motors stars Eva Mendes and Kylie Minogue, and takes place over the course of one day, and will be released on January 28th. Read on for more details.

Over the course of a single day, Monsieur Oscar travels by limousine around Paris to a series of nine “appointments,” transforming into a new character at each stop. Picked up in the morning by Céline, his trusty chauffeur, Oscar begins the day as a captain of industry before becoming a disabled, old gypsy woman begging for spare change on a bridge over the Seine.
Oscar’s seven proceeding incarnations call on what seem to be arbitrary locations throughout the day and night, including a video production facility, the Pere-Lachaide cemetery and a decaying Right Bank department store. With the aid of Céline and his dependable motor, Oscar encounters many bizarre situations and individuals, changing faces and never stopping once, until he fulfils his appointments.
