Nuit #1 (2011)

Clara (Catherine de Léan) and Nikolaï (Dimitri Storoge) meet at a rave, and return to his apartment for what starts out as an ordinary one-night stand. Instead of parting, the two young lovers share their deepest secrets in a sprawling conversation that explores the realities of the double lives they both lead. Nicolaï is an immigrant who envisions big projects and has big ideas but never manages to realize them. Clara is an elementary school teacher by day and a compulsive party girl by night.

Revealing existential despair without succumbing to it, Nuit #1 is a refreshingly direct take on the difficulty of making meaningful connection.

The film won Best Canadian Feature Film at the Vancouver International Film Festival.
