The Wheels In The Brain Go Round And Round

If you like films that have such an effect, go and see Holy Motors.

Monsieur Oscar bids goodbye to the children, they wish him a good day at work and he gets into a stretch limo to fulfill nine appointments around Paris. In the limo is a sophisticated make-up table, which he uses to play different characters when he steps out of the car.

So, it’s about films? Acting? Playing roles in life? Memory? Who we are? And, more concretely, what exactly are the Holy Rollers? And, for bish, can a barely-recognisable Kylie be singing a distinctly non-Kylie Neil Hannon song among the Paris rooftops without a nod to Moulin Rouge?

I’d love to get others’ opinions so, as I say, go and see it. This is the trailer, which seems to have a different opinion to me.

  1. It does sound interesting, I like weird and wonderful films. Unfortunately I will probably have to wait until it’s shown on Film 4.
