A spirited homage to that ephemeral moment in adolescence when nothing else matters but love. Akerman turns her wry, but sympathetic camera on the affair between young Julie and her two dreamy cab-drivers – the one who drives at night and the one who drives during the day. Their improbable love triangle soon becomes a witty comic odyssey. By the critically acclaimed director of the groundbreaking 1975 film, Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles, NIGHT AND DAY pays homage to Truffaut's classic Jules and Jim, while turning it into a feminist parable for the nineties.

"An elegant and stylish French comedy that's as subversively funny as its two young lovers. An astonishingly handsome, seriously comic extravaganza."
- Vincent Canby, NEW YORK TIMES

"Chantal Akerman may well be the most brilliant, innovative, and influential woman director working in film." - Linda Williams, CHICAGO READER
