Covering festivals far and wide throughout the year, we’ve become pretty adept at digging into the further reaches of various schedules. But we have to admit, for whatever reason, “You And The Night” (“Les Rencontres d’après minuit“) escaped our notice when it played the Cannes Critics’ Week this past spring. Which is a bit shameful considering none other than M83 scored the movie. But luckily, the artist himself has reminded his fans that he did more this year than just tune up Tom Cruise‘s space adventures in “Oblivion.” Now, he’s even dropped a track from the picture.
Below, you can listen to “Ali & Mathias,” from the Yann Gonzalez written and directed movie (yep, the helmer is the brother of Anthony Gonzalez aka M83) that tells the story of a young couple and their transvestite maid who prepare for an orgy with their guests The Slut, The Star, The Stud and The Teen. Again, how on Earth did this escape our notice. We’re particularly bummed after watching the trailer which looks like a pretty fetching piece of eye candy, as oddball as it all is.
There’s no U.S. distributor for the movie, but the soundtrack — which M83 describes as being for “lovers and ghosts” — drops digitally on November 19th with a physical release in 2014. Listen and watch below.
