YOU AND THE NIGHT
Around midnight, a stylish young couple and their exuberant transvestite maid prepare for an orgy. Their guests will be The Slut, The Star, The Stud and The Teen. Each comes with their own dark and impassioned secrets, unravelled in sequences and flashbacks, in a night that will stay with you long after. Writer-director Yann Gonzalez’ sensual and erotic debut played to critical-acclaim during Critics’ Week at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, and stars former international footballer, Eric Cantona and cult legend, Beatrice Dalle Betty Blue in this kitsch ode to love and lust.
With electrifying music by M83, helmed by Anthony Gonzalez, You and the Night evokes the style and substance of Almodovar, Ozon and Lynch.
Yann Gonzalez was born in Nice, France. He was a film critic who eventually went on to direct films. His short film, I Hate You Little Girls was selected for the Quinzaine de réalisateurs in the 2008 Cannes Film Festival.
