Fulfilling his early promise as one of the most gifted filmmakers of his generation, Leos Carax’s inventive and searingly original film brilliantly meshes a tale of young love with an avant-garde science fiction thriller.

 

 A young punk, Alex (Denis Lavant), becomes involved with a veteran criminal gang following his father’s mysterious demise. With Marc (Michel Piccoli), the gang leader, he plots to steal a serum that cures STBO, an epidemic that’s killing people who engage in sex without love.

 

 However, matters begin to get more complicated when Alex meets Anna (Juliette Binoche), Marc's entrancing young mistress. Together, Alex and Anna share an intimate night of conversation, soul searching and revelations that will change both of their lives forever.

 

 Visually stunning and uniquely stylish, Mauvais sang (Bad Blood/The Night is young) is one of the most remarkable French films of the 1980s earning Juliette Binoche her second Best Actress Cesar nomination as well as the Suzanne Biancehetti Award. A cult favourite around the world, Mauvais Sang won the prestigious Prix Louis Delluc 1986 and confirmed Juliette Binoche's status as one of French cinema's brightest and most talented young stars.
