Rating: 3/4 -- A light-headed, fleet-footed French caper, Jean-Jacques Beineix's ultra-stylish Diva stormed the art houses when it was released in 1982, and it's still a lot of fun now -- though its hip patina feels more quaint these days than cool. Full Review

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.
