Over the course of a single day, protagonist Monsieur Oscar (Lavant), takes on 10 other guises, ranging from a gangster and aging millionaire to a trouble parent and a chaotic tramp, as he travels by limousine around Paris for a series of “appointments”.  Monster movie, film noir, romantic drama, musical, crime thriller, and futuristic. Holy Motors encompasses a bit of everything for every audience.  It’s an inspirational, shape-shifting, dream of becoming story about unraveling and starting all over again.  Inspired by the filmmaker’s fascination with the after hours of life of stretch limousines, Holy Motors is a rarity, but above all a true original.
