Clara and Nikolaï meet at a rave. They return to Nikolaï's apartment and make love. Afterwards, instead of parting, the two lovers divulge their deepest secrets to one another. Nicolaï is a beautiful loser. At thirty-one years old, he leads a simple and frugal life. He applies himself to reading the great classics of literature but never finishes a book he has begun.

Some of their dialogue is twaddle -- they're not philosophers -- but the feelings are electric.
Like a filmed stage piece, a series of monologues in which the characters reveal their unhappiness without offering a hint that they might change.
Returning to some of the same themes she explored in her short films, Émond continues her smart contemplation of youth and the difficulties of making meaningful emotional connections in these times.
This is a different kind of movie, as graphic as porn, but not porn, not titillating and not unintelligent.
Despite the allure of the actors and some witty lines, it's ultimately quite wearying to be confronted with such determination to turn youth and good looks into existential burdens.
They invest so much humanity in their miserable characters that despite your dislike, you empathize enough to think, there but for the grace of God.
Conveys through soulless stranger sex, current youth's emotionally and economically distressed powerlessness, false freedoms and an absence of future. Much more than a love story, the film is possibly, according to Émond, 'the night before revolution.'
[The] concept works because of two actors who are willing to bare their bodies and souls.
The two performances are phenomenal making Émond's directorial debut an unforgettable experience.
Desperately ambitious yet emptily windy, unconvincing two-hander which purports to say something serious about modern-day romantic anomie.
In both its setup and its theme, Nuit #1 hopes to explore what it means to skip social precedents in order to go straight to something intimate, and whether those in-between stages can be revisited afterward.
...there's no mistaking it for anything other than a narrow-minded bit of festival fare...
