When you start a revolution, the hardest beat to find is your own.
The new film from Mia Hansen-Løve (Father of My Children, Goodbye, First Love) is a semi-biographical drama about the rise of the ‘French touch’ electronic music scene in the 1990s, one that spawned worldwide superstars like Daft Punk and Cassius.
With a narrative spanning two decades, EDEN revolves around aspiring Parisian DJ, Paul, as he steps into the underground dance music scene. Raves dominate, but he’s drawn to the more soulful rhythms of Chicago’s garage house movement, dropping out of daytime society in his all-encompassing pursuit of ceaseless beats and bass, emotional and pharmaceutical highs, and a string of relationships.
EDEN is a spectacular panorama of beautiful faces and bodies, light, colour and music, pulsating with the reckless heartbeat of youth.
