Movie Info

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. Unable to submit to any schedule, he finds himself unfit for work. He envisions big projects and has large ideas but, inevitably and despite himself, loses sight of them beforethey are realized. Clara, like Nikolaï, seems not to be made for this world. She leads a double life. By day, she works as a third grade teacher; by night, she is a compulsive party-girl. She goes out every night, gets drunk and high and sleeps with men, women or both at once. -- (C) Official Site

  • 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.

    Aug 9, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • This is a different kind of movie, as graphic as porn, but not porn, not titillating and not unintelligent.

    Aug 9, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    Jul 26, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    Jul 26, 2012 | Rating: 3/5
  • 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.
