Aro Recommended Annette

 

France / Belgium / USA 2021, 140 minutes
Dir. Leos Carax
In English, French with English subtitles
Genres: Drama / Musical, Fantasy

 

“A forthright and declamatory and crazy spectacle, teetering over the cliff edge of its own nervous breakdown, demanding that we feel its pain, feel its pleasure and take it seriously.”~Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Aroview: A magnificent musical-drama which marks the English language debut of French director Leos Carax (HOLY MOTORS).

Adam Driver gives another excellent lead turn as a stand-up comedian whose wife (Marion Cotillard) is a famous opera singer with a flourishing career. When she embarks on an international tour, their 2-year old child Annette - played by a wooden marionette puppet - is left in his care.

The screenplay is by Ron and Russell Mael of the adventurous American pop band Sparks, who also provide the music. A wildly ambitious film destined to gain a cult following along the rest of this director's consistently groundbreaking oeuvre.
