Leos Carax's cult favourite 'The Night is Young' established Juliette Binoche as one of France's most talented young actors.
Petty thief and street hustler Alex (Denis Lavant) plots to steal a new miracle cure for a mysterious 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, 'The Night is Young' ('Bad Blood') is a dazzlingly inventive mix of off-beat romance and sci-fi thriller that cemented Carax's reputation as one of the most exciting directors in the world.
