"[E]verything once new about DIVA seems new again. And the mechanics of Beineix's artistic audacity only become clearer." -- Grade: A

Product Description:

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.
