Bertrand Bonello (SAINT LAURENT) directs this provocative account of a group of young radicals whose terrorist attacks on Paris lead to a massive manhunt.

One morning in Paris. A group of French adolescents, from different backgrounds. Individually, they begin a strange dance through the labyrinth of the metro and the streets of the capital. They seem to be following a plan. Their gestures are precise, almost dangerous. They come together in the same place, a department store, at closing time. Paris erupts. The assault begins...

Bertrand Bonello began work on NOCTURAMA a half-decade before the horror of Paris, November 2015. His controversial film does not make any specific reference to religious extremism. The terrorism in the film is uncoupled from this context. Whether this ambiguity is a brave choice in commenting on fragmentation and politicized violence in Western society is left up to the audience. (source: www.tiff.net)
