Five years ago, director Bertrand Bonello (Saint Laurent, CINEMANIA 2014), scripted this storyline of a disaffected group of young Parisians who set-out to wreak havoc on their city, and shot Nocturama before the terrible events at Charlie Hebdo and the Bataclan. The multiracial gang he portrays committing bombings and assassinations are not jihadists and apparently have no justification other than that of anti-capitalism.
Auteur Bonello’s stylistic approach, killer soundtrack choices and good-looking cast make the film captivating to watch, especially when the perps finally hole-up overnight in a Paris luxury department store and appear to enjoy play-acting at consumerism. As in all of Bonello’s films, he thrills us with beauty, decadence and sumptuousness.
