With Félix de Givry, Pauline
Etienne, Vincent Macaigne

The club scene is the star of this sprawling ode to dance music. Portraying one man's journey from idealistic underage raver to star DJ to has-been, it captures the ecstatic joy and the reverberating emptiness of a life spent on the dance floor.
Director Mia Hansen-Løve co-wrote her third feature with her brother, Sven, based loosely on his experiences as a French house DJ.
