A double-bill that proposes two female perspectives on the city and its possibilities of encounter. A film that runs from morning till evening, followed by one that begins at dusk and ends as dawn approaches.

A young woman wanders around Paris, pulling a suitcase, from bar to bar, never finding the one she loves. Along the way, brief encounters with others elicit sympathy and solidarity amidst a changing neighbourhood. Montreuil and its inhabitants are the true protagonists in this film where love is perhaps an excuse to portray and celebrate everyday life in the city.

“On a hot, muggy summer’s night, men and women, anonymous individuals, love each other, separate, experience loneliness, embrace each other, desire, despair... A series of mini-dramas of love and desire — halfway between attraction and repulsion — set against the deserted nocturnal backdrop of Brussels.” (Cinematek)
