Just missing out on last year’s coveted Palme d’Or prize to Michael Haneke’s Amour (2012) and featuring a show-stopping, award-worthy performance from French chameleon Denis Lavant, Leos Carax’s wonderfully surreal arthouse hit Holy Motors (2012) finally makes its way onto DVD and Blu-ray this Monday. To celebrate Holy Motors’ home entertainment release on 28 January, we’ve kindly been provided with THREE DVD copies of the film to give away to our loyal readers, courtesy of our good friends at Artificial Eye. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at facebook.com/CineVueUK or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.
Set across a single day, Monsieur Oscar (Lavant) travels by limousine around Paris to a series of nine appointments, transforming into a new character at each stop. Picked up in the morning by his trusty chauffeur Céline (Edith Scob), Oscar begins the day as a captain of industry before becoming an old gypsy woman begging for spare change on a bridge over the Seine. Oscar’s seven proceeding incarnations call on what seem to be arbitrary locations throughout the day and night, including a video production facility, the Pere-Lachaide cemetery and a decaying department store. Oscar encounters many bizarre situations and individuals, changing faces and never stopping once, until he fulfils his appointments.
To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE DVD copies of Leos Carax’s Holy Motors, just answer the following simple question:
At which major European film festival did Carax’s Holy Motors première back in 2012?
