Eva Mendes co-stars in madcap film “Holy Motors”

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Actress Eva Mendes was on the red carpet prior to the "Holy Motors" screening at the AFI Fest in Los Angeles on Saturday (November 3). Directed by French filmmaker Leos Carax, the story follows Mr. Oscar - played with superhuman energy by Denis Lavant - a man who spends each day living 10 different lives, each mapped out for him in a dossier left in the back seat of the stretch white limousine he travels in. In the morning he is a rich businessman leaving his luxury home for work. Next he dresses up as an old woman beggar on the streets of Paris. Oscar's most shocking character is "Monsieur Merde," half-man half-beast who bursts in on a photo shoot at a Paris cemetery with Mendes and carries her to his underground lair where she soothes the naked and aroused monsieur. As to the film's meaning, critics struggle to agree. "I think shooting in one of my favourite places in the world, Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris, filming on a tomb, that tops my list of bizarre things to do," said Mendes. "Holy Motors" hits U.S. theatres on November 9.
