You and the NightBy Strand Releasing
Reminiscent of the early films of FranÃ§ois Ozon, You and the Night is a sexually explicit slice of modern surrealism from director Yann Gonzalez, making his feature-length debut. Around midnight, Mathias and Ali (Niels Schneider and Kate Moran), a young couple, and their transvestite maid Udo (Nicolas Maury) prepare for a surreal and eventful pansexual orgy. Their guests will be The Slut (Julie BrÃ©mond), The Star (Fabienne Babe), The Stud (Eric Cantona) and The Teen (Alain-Fabien Delon).
Reasons to Buy
- Critics have been pretty mixed over this movie, but the people who love it REALLY love it. Cahiers du CinÃ©ma named it one of their top 10 films of 2013.
- You and the Night is like an erotic and wildly adult take on The Breakfast Club - with each character baring their inner souls to the group to find acceptance and love... the main different being that these people are at an orgy and not in detention.
- The film takes inspiration from some pretty cool sources. It is heir to the playful sex romps of early FranÃ§ois Ozon, the dreamy color palette of Dario Argento and Kenneth Anger's erotic occultism. Also, the original score by M83 sets the dreamy and transcendent tone for the eternal night.
