Synopsis by Mark Deming
A couple share a day of intimacy after a night of eroticism in this independent drama from Canadian filmmaker Anne Émond. Clara (Catherine de Léan) meets Nikolai (Dimitri Storoge) at a rave, and the two feel an immediate sexual connection in the midst of the loud music and the gyrating masses of bodies. Clara goes back to Nikolai's apartment and they spend several hours making love. The next morning, he wakes just in time to see Clara slinking out of his flat without saying goodbye. Angry, Nikolai confronts Clara on this, and the two are soon in the midst of a deeply personal conversation. As Clara and Nikolai spend most of the day sharing their opinions and baring their souls, they find they're developing an emotional bond that's a good bit different than the physical attraction that brought them together. Nuit #1 was an official selection at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.
