(Chantal Akerman, 1982) · During a torrid summer night in Brussels, a cast of drifting figurants (over two dozen of them) search restlessly for companionship, colliding with and separating from one another like hopped-up molecules of boiling water. Stripped of a narrative through-line, the film brims with longing as it surveys the detritus of attempted relationships. From this series of encounters between strangers and lovers, Toute Une Nuit fashions a kaleidoscopic choreography of missed chances and tentative connections.
