Kinski and Gérard Depardieu star in Jean-Jacques Beineix’s hyper-stylized, noir-infused psychodrama, in which a working-class man (Depardieu) fixated on the memory of his sister’s violent death finds his attention drawn away toward a beautiful, wealthy woman who drives a red Ferrari Spider, and who may or may not know the secret behind the crime. Kinski’s grand entrance—head tossed back, hands caressing the Ferrari’s steering wheel, eyes slowly moving up to meet the camera’s gaze with a smile—is a lesson in on-screen seduction.
