A depressed aspiring filmmaker falls in love with a suicidal young woman in this off-beat French drama, the second feature from director Leos Carax. Both have been recently dumped by their lovers and neither is coping very well. They meet via an apartment intercom system. Later the filmmaker sees her by the Seine. They finally meet in person at an elegant party and begin a long, strange conversation over a kitchen table. During the course of their talking, the two find themselves unable to resist their mutual neediness and this leads them to tragedy. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Ecstatic cinema and ecstatic living join together in a pressurized promise of glory and misery, a flameout waiting to happen-and to be filmed."
‑ Richard Brody, New Yorker
"Pensively poetic."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"[VIDEO ESSAY] "Boy Meets Girl" is a passionate cinematic work that echoes the brilliant dramatic effects Leos Carax has achieved with his other films ("The Night is Young," "The Lovers on the Bridge," "Pola X," and "Holy Motors")."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"...shares the punk sensibilities of other films...which came out that year but also establishes themes and stylistic choices, many borrowed from the French New Wave, which would carry through Carax's own filmography."
‑ Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews
