On a Magical Night | Chambre 212 (N/C 15+)

Director Christophe Honoré has a way with looking at the trials and tribulations of love and relationships. In Love Songs (Les Chansons d’Amour) he dealt with the younger generation. Here, he moves on to middle age and the reckonings that infiltrate any couple over the years. Deliciously and deliberately theatrical, he serves up a French farce with a chanson-splattered soundtrack by the likes of Charles Aznavour. It takes place almost exclusively in two or three rooms – an apartment and a hotel opposite, as well as the snow-covered street in between. Chiara Mastroianni, as Maria, makes the most of a gift of a role as the college lecturer wife who admits her indiscretions to her husband Richard (a bewildered BenjaminsBiolay). Mastroianni won best actress award in Un certain regard at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

Cast Chiara Mastroianni, Vincent Lacoste, Camille Cottin, Benjamin Biolay, Carole Bouquet, Marie-Christine Adam

A gentle surrealist bedroom farce … Chiara Mastroianni scores as a jaded adulteress. – Variety
