Storyline

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. Written by lament

Mesmerizing Work of Cinematic Art
8 November 2008 | by nturnerSee all my reviews

Based upon actual events, this film is certainly not for everyone's tastes, but it is an intriguing, erotic, and fascinating watch. I'm not sure a film such as this could be made in the United States because of the nudity and overt sex that takes place amongst the young actors. It appears that here in the good old U.S.A., we know such things take place, but we don't seem to be able to admit it. Oh, it's fine to show teenagers killing each other, but heaven forbid that they take off their clothes and have so good, old steamy sex. Hopefully, these statements have sufficiently warned you that - if you view this film - you're going to see people under the legal age nude and engaging in sensuous acts. As one reviewer on this site put it, "The whole cast is beautiful, like they were born not to wear clothes." The story is of five, young friends - one girl and four boys - who enjoy life. Their relationship is symbiotic and sexual in various ways. One of the boys is the girl's brother and the alpha male of the group. He is handsome, sensual, and especially engaging - a master of social and sexual relationships. In addition to being the leader of the group's successful band, he is a high-class hustler engaging in both heterosexual and homosexual relationships. He is murdered - savagely beaten to death.

Is the relationship between the girl and her brother incestuous? It is left for the viewer to determine if they ever had intercourse, but it is made clear in the film that they fully explore each other's bodies and sensual psyches. Both the girl and her brother do engage in sex with one or more of the other boys. - all of this in a very open fashion.

The action in the film is not linear which presents somewhat of a job for the viewer to piece together all of the various events and relationships in the film. Most of the film is from the girl's viewpoint as her mind jumps here and there remembering events before and after her brother's death. She is so devastated by the death that she has had a breakdown. Her mental anguish is made worse by the fact that the murderer of her brother is unknown, and that the police have exhausted most of their leads. She is obsessed with the thought of finding her brother's killer.

Unlike many French films, all is revealed in the end, and the viewer is left to consider a mesmerizing work of cinematic art highlighting excellent acting and bold depictions of the sexual lives of five young people.
