Mia Hansen-Løve’s nightlife drama celebrates the euphoria of dance music but doesn’t shy away from showing what happens when the party’s over
The central scene in Mia Hansen-Løve’s Eden doesn’t last very long. It takes place during a heady party in the home of Thomas Bangalter’s parents. We are in the sitting room of the packed apartment, watching Bangalter and his partner Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo preparing to play music as Daft Punk for the first time. We hear the pair whisper to each other, watch them drum their fingers nervously, adjust the levels on the mixer again and again. Then, finally, the needle is placed on a platter of vinyl. The opening bars of Da Funk blast out, a song that would go on to be played countless times across the world. This small party goes wild but, as the track plays, the camera pulls away.
