French label Potemkine has revealed that it is preparing a Blu-ray release of director Leos Carax's (Lovers on the Bridge) Holy Motors (2012), starring Denis Lavant, Edith Scob, Eva Mendes, Kylie Minogue, and Michel Piccoli. The preliminary release date set by Potemkine is November 6th.
Monsieur Oscar (Lavant) is a man of many identities. Driven around Paris by his chauffeur, Celine (Scob), he makes use of an elaborate dressing room in his limousine to assume the appearance and identity of a number of different figures. At various points throughout the day Oscar is a businessman, a beggar, an assassin, a father and an old woman, venturing out into the world to engage with others in each role and embarking on bizarre adventures that include kidnapping a beautiful model, Kay (Mendes). What is at the root of Oscar's extraordinary behavior?
Note: British distributors Artificial Eye will release Holy Motors theatrically on September 28th. A Blu-ray release is expected early in 2013.
