This little observational portrait captures Denis Lavant (the actor responsible for the much talked about and practically universally acclaimed performance in Leos Carax’s Holy Motors from last year) as he conducts what seems to be a class with a group of people attempting to mimic his behaviors. Lavant has an extraordinary presence, as anyone who has seen the man’s performances can attest, and catching glimpses in this video of his way with movement/motion of the body and the art of physical acting is mesmerizing. Featuring a great jazz score from actor and musician John Lurie (The Lounge Lizards, Fishing With John, Stranger Than Paradise, Down By Law).
