Editors Note
Note This vibrant mash-up of genres from French director Jean-Jacques Beineix is regarded by many as the vanguard of the stylish Cinema De Look movement. After a young postal worker illegally tapes a performance by a reclusive opera singer, it isn't long before Taiwanese bootleggers, a prostitute, a video-incriminated police chief, and the cop's henchman are hot on his tail. DIVA won Cesar Awards for Best Music, Best Directorial Debut, and for its widely acclaimed cinematography.
Reviews
Sight and Sound "...An auspicious debut from a refreshingly original talent..." 09/01/1982 p.302
Uncut 3 stars out of 5 -- "After 25 years, these neon-and-mirrorshades visuals have acquired a retro-chic cool." 02/01/2007 p.105
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "DIVA kickstarted French cinema in the '80s....A postmodern blend of all-consuming Oedipal love and Hitchcockian crime thriller..." 03/01/2007 p.125
Entertainment Weekly "[E]verything once new about DIVA seems new again. And the mechanics of Beineix's artistic audacity only become clearer." -- Grade: A 11/16/2007 p.56
