Plot Summary

Sleepless Night tells the story of Vincent, a respected and dedicated police officer - or so it seems. After he and a colleague are recognized while stealing a massive bag of cocaine from drug dealers employed by local mob boss Marciano, Vincent quickly finds himself trapped in a situation that no parent would envy: his son has been kidnapped with the promise of execution if he doesn't immediately deliver the bag back to its rightful owner. Vincent heads to Marciano's nightclub on the outskirts of Paris to make the swap, but competing interests and misplaced loyalties soon threaten to complicate the exchange. The ensuing game of cat-and-mouse quickly spirals into madness, sprawling across every seedy back room and pulsating, claustrophobic inch of the crowded dance floor. With enemies on all sides and time working against him, the night to come might not only be the longest but also the last of Vincent and his young son's life.

Critics Reviews for Sleepless Night

Charging from one beating to another, wrenching diminishing returns from drunken camera angles and cat-and-mouse games, Mr. Jardin makes Vincent's predicament as hollow as a sustained scream.
Critic Score: 2.5/5

New York Times

The sort of stripped-down, Francophone picture that's been spoiling American action fans over the last few years. There are no Cuisinarted fight scenes, no pauses for awkward romantic subplots.
Critic Score: 4/5

This tense French thriller never goes anywhere new, but nonetheless keeps up an admirable adrenaline kick till the end.
Critic Score: 3/5
