Synopsis

Marion is 18 years old. She is filled with grief since the loss of her sister, and has reached an age where she feels a vital need for freedom. On the anniversary of her sister’s loss, she embarks on a journey through the streets of Paris. What follows is an evening of encounters with some familiar faces in a city that youth no longer relate with, until Marion meets the impulsive and free-spirited Alex. A reunion of two solitudes, their path will evolve into a rhythm of wandering in the city, like a journey into the night.

Director’s Statement

Ma nuit deals with grief and the way it transforms, even distorts, our view of the world. I have chosen the form of a journey that is both internal and physical to portray an eighteen-year-old girl, as well as the Paris of today. It is a kind of wandering, a distant derivative of mythology, in which heroes lose themselves, confront each other, seeking a goal set by external events they cannot control. Marion’s night in Paris becomes the reflection of a generation in mourning for its insouciance, abandoned in a broken world. The pursuit of freedom, or rather the sense of freedom for a generation that lives in fear, is the central theme of Ma nuit.
