Nuit #1

Directed by Anne Émond
Canada, 2011 (fiction, 91 minutes, colour, French)
Also known as "Night #1", "Nuit no 1"

Film Description:
"Clara, a 28-year-old Québecoise, and Nikolai, a 31-year-old Ukranian meet at a rave. In the middle of the night, they go home to Nikolai's and make love. Afterwards, rather than part ways, they decide to talk. They expose their fears, regrets, their disappointments in meaningless relationships, and their shared feeling of not belonging to this world. In the morning, Clara, who is a teacher, leaves to teach her grade threes. One by one, the children recite from the great works of literature in French. Nuit no 1 is a reflection on sex, intimacy, and love: a one-night stand that takes an unexpected, human turn."
