“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.

2 stars (Good Try) The music was hard work and unfortunately, it was there for most of the long running time and was a real distraction. On the positive side, there were some good set designs and artwork.~tubbs
