The fourth feature from Mia Hansen-Løve (Father of My Children, Goodbye First Love) is a rare achievement: an epically scaled work built on the purely ephemeral, breathlessly floating along on currents of feeling. Eden is based on the experiences of Hansen-Løve's brother (and co-writer) Sven, who was one of the pioneering DJs of the French rave scene in the early 1990s. Paul (Félix de Givry) and his friends, including Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter (otherwise known as Daft Punk), see visions of ecstasy in garage music-as their raves become more and more popular, they experience a grand democracy of pure bliss extending into infinity, only to dematerialize on contact with changing times and the demands of everyday life. Hansen-Løve's film plays in the mind as a swirl of beautiful faces and bodies, impulsive movements, rushes of cascading light and color (lensed by the great cameraman, Denis Lenoir), and music, music, and more music. Eden is a film that moves with the heartbeat of youth.

Directed by Mia Hansen-Løve
Starring Felix de Givry , Hugo Conzelmann , Pauline Etienne , Vincent Macaigne , Vincent Lacoste and Arnaud Azoulay
Release Date - TBD

Broad Green Finds ‘Eden’
via Deadline

Broad Green Pictures, which announced its presence on the distribution scene in Toronto with a marquee $3 million deal for 99 Homes, has acquired North American rights to Mia Hansen-Løve’s Eden. The pic, set in the underground electronic dance movement in early-’90s Paris, had its world premiere in Toronto and is playing the New York Film Festival that kicks off Friday.

Broad Green plans a spring 2015 release for the pic, which follows Paul (Félix de Givry), a teenager drawn to the more soulful rhythms of Chicago’s garage house than rave music forms a DJ collective named Cheers (two of his friends form another one called Daft Punk, who float throughout the movie). Together they plunge into the ephemeral nightlife of sex, drugs, and endless music. Pauline Etienne, Vincent Macaigne co-star with appearances by Brady Corbet, Laura Smet and Greta Gerwig. The deal was negotiated by Grégoire Melin and Ram Murali of Kinology on behalf of the filmmakers, and by Broad Green Pictures executives Asher Goldstein and Shawn Xu.
