Holy Motors in January

Artificial Eye have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray release of Holy Motors on 28 January 2013. Writer-director Leos Carax's first feature film since 1999 has received critical acclaim and numerous awards during its theatrical run.

Synopsis: Over the course of a single day, Monsieur Oscar 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 Céline, his trusty chauffeur, Oscar begins the day as a captain of industry before becoming a disabled, 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 Right Bank department store. With the aid of Céline and his dependable motor, Oscar encounters many bizarre situations and individuals, changing faces and never stopping once, until he fulfils his appointments.

Extras are TBC.
