1991 | France | Leos Carax | ★★★★★

Leos Carax's masterfully kinetic, joyously sensuous Les Amants du Pont-Neuf is an utterly beautiful romantic drama, featuring unforgettable imagery, seductively tragic plotting, and a pair of absolutely wonderful performances from Juliette Binoche and Denis Lavant.
