Storyline

Combining punk rock and post-apocalyptic mayhem, Arrabal's outrageous adaptation of his infamous stage play is a gallows-humor romp in a wretched dystopia. The inhabitants of a junkyard at the edge of a nuclear crater live hand to mouth all the while being hounded by authorities from a corrupt government. Among them is Emanou (Alain Bashung), a punk rock star agitator doomed to betrayal by one of his own. A raucous and absurd retelling of the Christ story with thugs, murderers, pimps and punks, CAR CEMETERY is one of Fernando Arrabal's most rare and wanted films.
