Still from Holy Motors

Léos Carax’s Holy Motors has been named the best in Top-10 of 2012 list of French film journal ‘Cahiers du Cinéma’. The film won the Award of the Youth and was nominated for the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival 2012 and three other awards, Best International Feature, Best Actor and Best Cinematography awards, at the Chicago International Film Festival 2012. Holy Motors has replaced Nanni Moretti’s We Have a Pope, that was last year’s number one. Carax has twice earlier featured on Cahier’s list with Bad Blood and Lovers on the Bridge.

 David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis has secured the second place. The film has been one of the festival favourites of the year. It was nominated for Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.

Started in 1951, Cahiers du Cinéma has seen prominent cinephiles like Jacques Rivette, Jean-Luc Godard, Claude Chabrol and Francois Truffaut, write for the magazine.
