Product Description

Product Description

The Night is Young - Petty thief and street hustler Alex (Denis Lavant) plots to steal a new miracle cure for an AIDS-like virus on behalf of his gangster friend Marc (Michel Piccoli). But this attracts the notice of a mysterious American woman who also wants the serum. One of the most notable films of the 80s, this dazzlingly inventive mix of off-beat romance and sci-fi thriller cemented Carax's reputation as one of the most exciting directors in the world.

At first, this Blu-ray refused to play on a recent player by a prominent S. Korean company, which did not follow up on my service call requesting help. Fortunately, after we went into the setup menu on another Artificial Eye Blu-ray, and switched the sound from its default 5.1 setting to stereo, both worked fine--somewhat mysterious, though.
As for the film, Carax fans will recognize threads like a mysterious and playful plot, this one involving a heist and a tongue-in-cheek storyline about an epidemic affecting loveless lovers, and fans of Jean-Luc Godard may notice a certain amount of debt to his late 60s films, with Juliette Binoche here reminding this viewer of the protagonist of Bande à Part and Vivre Sa Vie. My favourite parts of the film are the enigmatic and exuberant scenes where the actor's (especially Denis Lavant's) physical expression and the musical soundtrack saturate the scene, almost leaving the plot behind. The décor in Mauvais Sang (AKA The Night Is Young) is dominated by cool greys and touches of deep red, for a much more alluring visual landscape than that of the ravaged and desolate settings of Pola X or Les Amants du Pont-Neuf; the transfer to Blu-ray looks lovely.
The film offers unexpected and stunning images, and subtle moments of comedy, though, as a whole, I find Carax's approach works best when he mostly does away with plot structure, as in Holy Motors.

Format: DVD
This 1986 offering is chiefly (only?) worth viewing for glimpses of a young and comely Juliette Binoche and Julie Deply, both of whom fortunately went on to bigger and better things. I say viewing rather than buying deliberately, for unless you are a serious fan of arty european film - it isn't. The packaging notes and other reviews suggest that this is some worthy commentary on HIV/AIDS, with an organised crime twist. Believe it not. These strands provide but the flimsiest of plots to instigate the frankly tedious attempts of the male lead (Dennis Lavant) to try to get in bed with Juliette Binoche (an admirable aim for a young man admittedly), and his subsequent angst at failing to do so. Things look up momentarily when Lavant for no apparent reason bursts in to a bout of Footloose-style street dance to a David Bowie number. But alas this excitement is short lived.

After a short 'action' sequence the film comes to a very welcome if inconclusive end. I was left with no profound insight or enlightenment by the experience.

Beautiful and strange. Very brave actors doing some scary stunts themselves.
