A masterful cult classic, ‘cinéma du look’ director Jean-Jacques Beineix’s (Betty Blue) internationally acclaimed thriller tells the story of a young postman, Jules (Frederic Andrei) who is fascinated by the voice of American diva Cynthia Hawkins (Wilhelmenia Wiggins Fernandez), secretly recording her singing on tape. But his recording gets mixed up with another that features audio incriminating a police chief working with the mob – and Jules must find a way to extricate himself from a dangerous situation alive. Visually thrilling, voluptuously romantic and genuinely surreal, Diva is an audaciously exciting and unpredictable watch.
