Bad Blood


In this his second feature, Leos Carax lives up to his billing as 'the natural heir of Jean-Luc Godard.'" – New York Times

Cinema Reborn proudly presents the World Premiere screening of the new 4K restoration of Leos Carax’s poetic and tragic love story. Teenagers are caught up in a sexually transmitted plague that leaves them emotionless and unable to commit to relationships. There’s a medical antidote, but the government has it locked away and two old crooks have been tasked with stealing it. Carax’s stylish, invigorated direction makes references to cinema history as Mauvais Sang presents its distinctive take on Modern Love (with thanks to David Bowie).

A masterpiece of ecstatic cinema from 1986, directed by Leos Carax at the age of twenty-five.” — The New Yorker

A salute, at once moody and ebullient, to the cinema of the past and the ferocious intensity of youth.” — The Village Voice

The kind of movie that, even on a third viewing, makes you ashamed of the last 100 movies you watched.” — Otie Wheeler

The 8:30pm on Friday 28 April will be introduced by Ivan Cerecina, who is currently working on a book on the idea of montage in post-war French film.
