Remember that fictional movie based upon Daft Punk? There has been information here and there about the movie. We know that Daft Punk has read the script and agreed to be apart of the movie. Their music is in the film as well as the trailer. The movie is going to show the other side of the DJ’s with drugs, sex, and grimey DJ booths. You’re going to hear a lot of nostalgic music such as from the late Frankie Knuckles. Here is what Palace Films says on the trailer page:
The exhilarating 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 (the captivating Félix de Givry), 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. He and best friend Stan form a duo and drop out of daytime society in their all-encompassing pursuit of ceaseless beats and bass, emotional and pharmaceutical highs, and a string of relationships (excellent support here from Greta Gerwig, Laura Smet and Pauline Etienne).
Inspired by the experiences of her brother and collaborator Sven, Hansen-Løve’s film is a spectacular panorama of beautiful faces and bodies, rushes of cascading light and colour and, of course, music. Shifting between euphoria and melancholy, EDEN is a film that pulsates with the reckless heartbeat of youth.
