FILM DESCRIPTION: In this romantic drama, a pair of charming eccentrics decides to leave reality behind, only to discover that it's chasing after them. Alex (Denis Lavant) is a street performer with a fire-eating act who finds shelter at night on the Pont Neuf, a scenic Paris bridge that has been closed down for repairs. One day, Alex meets Michele (Juliette Binoche), an artist who has decided to leave the security of her "real" life behind to draw sketches on the streets; he offers to let her join him on the bridge and she agrees. Love blooms between them as they enjoy the lovely spectacle of Paris, but when Michele's friends and family hang posters around town begging for her return, Alex decides that he must tear them all down to prevent Michele from being taken away from him. Writer and director Leos Carax set this film during the French Bicentennial celebrations to take advantage of the spectacular fireworks displays staged to commemorate the holidays.
