Nocturama

Synopsis

Bonnello’s (Saint Laurent) latest provocation is a film in two distinct and gripping parts: first, a procedural in which we follow a group of Parisian young people, crucially of varying backgrounds, as they carry out a sure-to-be-controversial, city-wide, premeditated terrorist plot; second, a waiting game, oscillating between tense, languid, and bizarre, and which clearly reveals the absolute brutality of the mass media and the militarized state apparatus. A 21st-century thriller of the moment, Nocturama asks impossible questions and alludes to geopolitical issues with a profoundly troubling yet thrilling wink.
