Nuit et jour
Part of Chantal Akerman.
Date + TimeSaturday, January 31, 2009
LocationPhyllis Wattis Theater
1991, 90 min.
Jack is a taxi driver by night and spends his days with Julie in their Parisian flat. Julie begins an affair with Joseph, the man who drives the same taxi by day. Julie's world is fluid and dreamlike, exploring what it means to be free in love. The film, however, is fragmented, fluctuating between night and day, Jack and Joseph, love and deceit.
