The film had its world premiere with the original title “Chambre 212” at the Cannes Film Festival in the “Special Screenings” program. The film was nominated for the main award of the section, while actress Chiara Mastroianni was awarded the prize for the best actress of the competition.
The romantic comedy was written and directed by Christophe Honoré. For his films “Sorry Angel” (2018), “The Beautiful Person” (2008), and “Love Songs” (2007) he was repeatedly nominated for the Cannes and César Awards.
Chiara Mastroianni, the daughter of Catherine Deneuve and Marcello Mastroianni, is the leading actress in the film. This is her sixth role in the films of Christophe Honoré. Benjamin Biolay, a César Award nominee for his role in “Stella”, and a four-time nominee for César Award Vincent Lacoste, also star in the film. You could enjoy Lacoste’s acting this summer in the drama called “Amanda”, released in “Listapad. Collections”.
“On a Magical Night” is built on real emotions, loyalty, and the desire to keep love,” writes Screen. The Critic notes that the comedy is “the model of a romantic comedy. A story filled with inspiration, hope, and passion.” Paris Match supports this idea: “This is a great film about love that passes by, but sometimes comes back.”
