The Lovers On the Bridge (Les amants du Pont-Neuf) by Leos Carax (France, 1991, 125 min.). The streets and waterways of Paris provide the stunning backdrop in this stirring romance. Binoche, in one of her best roles, plays Michèle, a homeless painter losing her sight. She finds herself drawn into a passionate relationship with Alex, a troubled street performer. Despite all obstacles, they find love and shelter on Paris’s famed Pont-Neuf bridge, as their sensuality is rendered visually with dazzling imagery and sweeping camerawork. But their unlikely love is tested as Michèle's secret past catches up with her. In French with English subtitles.
