In Léos Carax's genre-hopping wonder, a mystery man (Denis Lavant) is chauffeured around Paris in a stretch limousine for a day, emerging nine times and acting out a different prearranged scenario on each occasion.

We can argue about what it all means, but it's definitely one of 2012's liveliest and most stimulating films, as well as the only one to feature Kylie Minogue crooning a ballad composed by Neil Hannon.
