Leos Carax's brilliant feature debut follows the relationship of an aspiring filmmaker, played by 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 stunning effect, Boy Meets Girl is a blend of black humour and gentle romance that heralded Carax’s luminous career.
