Critic Reviews for You and the Night (Les rencontres d'après minuit)

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

  • [A] chamber piece of sex, surreality and the absurd, like something by Luis Buñuel or Luigi Pirandello, or a sexed-up version of TS Eliot's The Cocktail Party.

  • A banquet of body and soul.

  • Gonzalez's weakness is one of pace and tone. There are sensational moments in You and the Night, but he can't quite manage to bring it together.

  • Surreal and over-constructed, this offbeat French drama often feels more like a stage play than a movie, with its pointed dialogue and a cast of "types".

  • The film's prurient philosophising can be frustratingly pithy but there's a cheeky gag around every corner and the imaginative visuals, committed performances and tendency to transgress mean things are never less than interesting.

  • You and the Night defies being categorised as solely for a LGBT audience, but the film's abstract narrative and transgressive sprinkles still means that it will probably find more of an appreciation with a niche audience.

Audience Reviews for You and the Night (Les rencontres d'après minuit)

An aesthetically gorgeous film infused with intense eroticism in its "sensory jukebox" and with a surreal atmosphere highlighted by M83's trippy score, although it goes a bit too far in its efforts to be profound and poetic, becoming instead prolix and self-indulgent.

A strange brew. A mystical couple and their maid host a gathering of nameless souls to indulge in an orgy that turns into a group therapy session. Lots of surreal images, a little bit of skin, here and there, with a healthy dose of male full-frontal nudity and a sad group of characters made this a difficult film to process. But in spite of that, this viewer found it quite interesting. It is slow moving, but full of rich visuals. The dialog seemed a bit pretentious, but, as I am not a francophone, I do not know if that was the fault of the script or the subtitles. A typical ambiguous French ending. Will he, or won't he?
