Despite the Night Despite the Night

Where to watch

We enter the film like into a dream.
Paris. Lenz looks for Madeleine who has mysteriously disappeared.
He encounters Hélène, a young woman bewitched by her self-destructive impulses.
A crazy love develops between them.
Louis and Léna, devoured by their jealousy, lead Lenz to follow, against his better wishes, Hélène into the subterranean world of a dark sexual exploitation network.
Although lost, lost from the first, love is what saves us.
