Eden: Directed by Mia Hansen-Løve

The fourth feature from the gifted director Mia Hansen-Løve is based on the experiences of her brother (and co-writer) Sven, who was one of the pioneering DJs of the French rave scene in the early 1990s.
Paul (Félix de Givry) and his friends, including Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter (otherwise known as Daft Punk), see visions of ecstasy in garage music.  As their raves become more popular, they experience a grand democracy of pure bliss, only to dematerialize on contact with changing times and the demands of everyday life.
Featuring memorable appearances from Greta Gerwig and Brady Corbet, Hansen-Løve’s film consists of beautiful faces and bodies, impulsive movements, thrilling music (which can also get moody), rushes of cascading light and color, courtesy of the great cinematographer, Denis Lenoir.
A film that moves with the energy of youth, Eden should be appreciated by young viewers as wellas old one who remember when disco music burst upon the world, back in the 1970s.
Eden played last week at the Toronto Film Festival, but ha no American distributor yet.
Hanson-Love had previously directed the very worthy films Father of My Children and Goodbye First Love.
