You and the Night (Les rencontres d'après minuit)
Oops, just missed it! This film is no longer available on Netflix streaming or DVD.
Put the kids to bed early this weekend because things are about to get a little risqué. You've never seen a Netflix selection quite like You and the Night (Les rencontres d'après minuit). Writer and director Yann Gonzales puts together an erotic and bewitching screenplay that centers around a curious living situation involving a couple and a sexually- charged transvestite house maid named Udo (Nicolas Maury).
Mysterious and melancholy Matthias (Niels Schneider) and his feisty lover Ali (Kate Moran), along with Udo, invite an eclectic mix of guests to a good old fashioned orgy. These guests identify themselves as The Star, The Teen, The Bitch, and The Stud, played by former Manchester United soccer player Eric Cantona.
Each character shares their individual reason for feeling empty inside, each tale becoming more fantastical than the last.
Finally we come to the hosts' story and how this entire late night soiree came to be. It is only then that I found the overt and outrageous sex acts to become clear and possibly even worth while.
As Halloween approaches, an erotic thriller with a touch of morbidity and evil seems just the ticket, best accompanied of course, by a sense of humor.
