In a world ravaged with STBO, a sexually transmitted disease only acquired by people having sex without any emotion, a woman known as "the American" takes action by hiring a man to steal the antidote. Focused on the different stages of sexuality between ages and genders, "Mauvais Sang" is a drama-packed French film presenting a dystopia rottened by the impatient and inessential use of sex that has been constantly practiced throughout time. Grasping onto the true meanings of love and life, Leos Carax comments on the world's abuse of love with an outstanding and noteworthy film noir.

Mauvais Sang (Bad Blood) is for serious viewers only. I got it because I wanted to see an early Juliette Binoche film. The director, born Alex Christophe Dupont, goes by Leos Carax (which is a rearrangement of Alex and Oscar). The film is a parody of film noir, suspense and science fiction, and is highly experimental and French New Wavish. Probably the viewer will miss many of the jokes – for example I would have missed the hide item with gum trick if I had not just seen Ride the Pink Horse. Films like this are made for conversation as the viewers try to figure out the intent of the director. Don’t bother if you are looking for a serious plot, a comical plot, action or a complete understanding.
