Feature Narrative / 2022 / France / 111min / Directed by Mikhaël Hers
It’s 1981 and newly separated Elisabeth (Charlotte Gainsbourg) is having trouble sleeping, she’s running low on money and has two teenage children to care for.
Finding a job at a late-night radio show she meets Talulah (Noée Abita), a semi-itinerant young woman, and invites her home…
In The Passengers of the Night, director and, alongside Maud Ameline and Mariette Desert, co-writer Hers has created a compact, family drama, with a calm naturalistic tone, that slowly unfolds before his camera, drawing comparisons in The Guardian “the unshowy drama of [new wave director] Eric Rohmer.”
