Movie Info

Directors Jean-Marc Barr and Pascal Arnold's sexually political drama Chacun Sa Nuit explores the carnal interdependencies among a host of characters who live in a town in provincial France. At the center of it all is Pierre (Arthur Dupont), a conceited and vain bisexual musician in his late teens who acts as a magnet, to varying degrees, for a whole array of characters -- from his sister, Lucie (Lizzie Brocheré), with whom he has a heated incestuous relationship, to a city councilor with whom he participates in gay orgies. When Pierre turns up dead, Lucie investigates the reasons for his demise and charts the network of sadomasochistic relationships that crisscross the town. Arnold wrote the screenplay, based on an actual series of events; the picture co-stars Pierre Perrier, Nicolas Nollet, and Guillaume Baché.

The film doesn't mean anything, but it's beautifully photographed and the cast is blindingly gorgeous and frequently naked.

What sets it apart is all that's so effectively left unsaid.

An uncommonly sensual and disquieting take on a familiar youth-movie theme: how the cocoon of adolescent sexual awakening can be torn apart by violent desire.

If this is art, Cinemax is the Louvre.

Only the French seem to get away with passing off sensational sex romps as high art, but One to Another is pretty much just trashy -- its murder-mystery conceit a sideshow to the film's primary offering: nubile nudity.

Only the French could or would make a movie like this. You'll enjoy it if you turn off your brain and concentrate on the eye candy.

Audience Reviews for One to Another

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 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.
