One can sense potential in this movie, but no one here seems to have the skill to grasp it.

It's French...so...another idiotic lack of an ending.

Great beautiful cast, but even though its based on a true story, it didn't do anything for me. Should've been heartbreaking, but wasn't.

Undeniably well-crafted, and peopled with a cast of lovely young men, it is also, unfortunately, a sick little morality tale that once again suggests that favorite theme of adolescent sex films: the wages of sin is death.

Have you ever said to somebody: " I cant explain it, I'll just have to show you" ? THAT is what this movie is about.. Everybody thinks the motive for the devastating loss here is a huge mystery and the nudity is excessive but it is required to invoke in the viewer the sense of exclusion, envy, desire that almost hurts, the fleeting nature of youth and love; all of which IS the answer the questions some are left with after taking in this story. I found this haunting and hard to shake when it was over. quite beautiful really, the heart stoppingly pretty naked bodies dont hurt either.

This movie is great if you're looking to watch a lot of naked attractive people. However, if you're looking for a good solid plot and intriguing mystery drama, you may have a bit more difficulty. The flashback style storytelling, and the fact the male characters look so much alike, sprinkled over the always annoying subtitle reading, makes for a very confusing watch. By the end of it, I was convinced it should've and could've been a great movie... if it had been written or directed in a way I could follow the timeline and understand the characters better. (And yes, I enjoy intelligent films and nearly every genre. However. I'll admit, French films with their soft core porn and empty plots are usually a bit much for me)

Well, the male actors were hot, the lead actress very pretty, and they were all very fun to look at. I just wish I knew what the hell was going on throughout most of the movie.

Lizzie Brocheré rappelle Mary-Kate Olsen; je ne sais pas qui est la meilleure. "The Dreamers" plus une enquête d'un meurtre plus une histoire réelle qui raconte rien. Et, voilà, ce film.

I thought this would be a dull drawn out frnech film, but I found it quite interesting, and the fact that it was a true story, all the more compelling. Goiod performances all around.

This is a true story? Fairly bizarre and leaves the taste of spoiled figs in ones mouth. I guess they are trying to convey that we can't really ever know why people kill people. Equal parts incest, voyeurism, and murder.
April 4, 2012
This movie posits that we can never know why people commit a horrible crime, such as, oh, violently kill their best friend for no reason. It's one of the dumbest points any movie ever tried to make. At least the incest scenes are fun.

A good film. Chacun sa nuit is literally "Each one's night" in English.

I had read in the L.A. Times in 2007 about this film being released, so I jotted it down as one to watch for. It never got released while I was in town, so I found the DVD and bought it in Dec. 2007. I just watched it and came to find it like a fantasy sort of film mixed with murder and mystery. Then I come to find that it was based on a true story. It seems to me these French youth had too much time to spare and spent a lot of time with sexual exploration. Alas...sad to learn the outcome. I got something out of this one but I doubt I'll ever want to see it again. I am most curious about the "real life" people (in which the story is based) and where they are NOW though.

Fuck you Jean Reno..
April 4, 2012
well done. the synopsis for this is pretty bad, but the movie is cool. kinda like a "whodunit" but better. of course it's french with english subs.
April 4, 2012
It's unbelievably based on true story!
April 4, 2012
Went to see this at Institut just because Jean-Marc Barr was there for a Q&A after! Film is bizarre and lots of teenage nudity-so very French!!but not bad overall. Captures teenagehood quite well.

despite the fact that the film is about the dodgy subject of incest, this is quite a beautiful film - great cinematography, great acting, great retelling of actual events.
½ April 4, 2012
I was prepared to write off this movie as one with a few great performances and a lot of meaningless philosophies, until I realized it was a true story. I don't know how one recounts such a thing, especially with the incestual overtones, but...as a psychological study, it's pretty impressive. The excess of nudity is kind of a bonus. Lizzie Brochere is quite beautiful and quite the actor to boot.
