Holy Motors: L’accordéoniste Denis Lavant
Alan Zisman from Vancouver’s Squeezebox Circle sent me this. Yup, it is cool.
Wait! What was that? Let’s just say what a remarkable variety of accordions there are!
Apparently it’s from a French film called Holy Motors. It sounds weird, even though it has this perfectly reasonable scene of a growing crowd of accordionists and hangers on striding through a cathedral jamming on funky parade-music. Aside from that it looks very strange.
It’s about a guy who lives a bunch of different lives all at once, or something. With limousines, disguises, assassinations, fashion-models, etc. all the ingredients for your average James Bond movie. But apparently it’s weirder than that, and there’s accordions which make it better. Makes me want to see it.
I remember now I was reading about this film. Here’s the trailer, looks intriguing.
