Two films by Leos Carax on DVD and Blu-ray in May

30 April 2014

Artificial Eye have announced the UK Blu-ray debut and DVD (re-) release of two films by opinion-dividing French filmmaker Leos Carax, his 1984 debut feature Boy Meets Girl and his 1986 follow-up The Night is Young [Mauvais sang], both of which star young and up-and-coming actor Dennis Levant.

 

Leos Carax's feature debut Boy Meets Girl follows the relationship of an aspiring filmmaker (Denis Lavant) who has just been left by his lover and a suicidal young woman (Mireille Perrier) who is also reeling from a failed romance. Using bold, mesmeric black-and-white imagery to captivating effect, Boy Meets Girl is a blend of black humour and gentle romance that heralded Carax's luminous career.

Special features will include:

  • Introduction by Denis Lavant

  • On Set ‘In the Kitchen’

In The Night is Young petty thief and street hustler Alex (Denis Lavant) plots to steal a new miracle cure for an AIDS-like virus on behalf of his gangster friend Marc (Michel Piccoli). But this attracts the notice of a mysterious American woman who also wants the serum. One of the most notable films of the 80s, this dazzlingly inventive mix of off-beat romance and sci-fi thriller cemented Carax's reputation as one of the most exciting directors in the world.

Special features will include:

  • Theatrical trailer

  • Outtakes and rushes

  • Deleted scene

Boy Meets Girl and The Night is Young will be released individually on UK DVD (previously the films were released on UK DVD as part of Artificial Eye's The Leos Carax Collection) and make their UK Blu-ray debut on 26th May 2014 by Artificial Eye at the RRP of £15.99 for the DVD versions, and £19.99 for the Blu-ray.
