2023 BRIFF: “Une nuit,” directed by and starring Alex Lutz, kicks off Festival’s 6th edition

Yesterday the 6th edition of the Brussels International Film Festival was launched with “Une Nuit,” a.k.a. “One Night,” which was also previously screened at the Cannes Film Festival (section Un Certain Regard). The film focuses on the devouring and ephemeral passion of two strangers, played by Alex Lutz (top image) and Karin Viard, in the streets of Paris. The film will be released in Belgium next August 23 and is distributed by O’Brother Film Distribution.
