Nos­tal­gia glows with the un­sen­ti­men­tal light of an all-night party at dawn in this hon­est and affectionate look at France’s house-mu­sic scene in the 1990s. Co-writer and di­rec­tor Mia Hansen-Løve takes the ex­pe­ri­ences of her DJ brother, Sven (who co-wrote the script), and cre­ates a fic­tional ac­count of the ups and down of his ro­man­tic and ca­reer lives. It all takes place within the as­cen­dance of dance mu­sic in France and nat­u­rally, the sound­track is sen­sa­tional. The most no­table artists to rise from this scene are Gram­my­win­ning duo Daft Punk, por­trayed in this film not as robots but as reg­u­lar guys who re­mained some­what hum­ble as their ca­reers sky­rock­eted. Rated R. 131 min­utes. In French with sub­ti­tles. Re­gal DeVar­gas. (Robert Ker)
