HE’S BACK BABY
A Parisian romantic comedy about infidelity comes as reliably as the sun rising at dawn. Last year alone saw films like Philippe Garrel’s Lover for a Day, and A Faithful Man from his son Louis. What can be said about the apparently gruelling hardship of staying faithful that isn’t a repetition of these tired ruminations? And yet, with On a Magical Night, Honoré expands the limitations of the genre with a fresh take that borders on the fantastical.
