By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: “Sleepless Night” and “The Raid” were the two breakout hits from this year’s Midnight Madness program at the Toronto International Film Festival. Both were so popular, they’ve already triggered American remakes. But you want to know when you can see the originals, right? Of course.

So, good news. Tribeca Film announced today that it has acquired all U.S. rights to “Sleepless Night,” which will be released in 2012 on VOD and theatrically by Tribeca Film. Warner Bros. recently acquired the English-language remake rights to the film, which is directed by Frédéric Jardin.

Fantastic Fest 2011: "Sleepless Night," reviewed

26 September 2011 9:40 AM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

There's been a lot of good criticism about action movies lately. Matthias Stork and Jim Emerson's "Chaos Cinema" and "In the Cut" video essays have got people asking the question: what makes a good action movie? I've just seen the answer; it's a French thriller called "Sleepless Night." Without being didactic in any way, it is action movie as criticism of action movies, leading by example in an era of incoherent films with stale aesthetics. After a long day at Fantastic Fest, a midnight screening of "Sleepless Night" woke me up more effectively than any cup of coffee I've ever had in my life. Hours later, I was still riding the high. So the movie's not only great, the title's accurate too.

Exposition is kept to a minimum; action defines character. Impressions are made, then upended by new revelations, onion-peeling style. We open on a daring daytime heist. Two men, »

Sleepless Night (Nuit blanche) | Review - Fantastic Fest 2011

24 September 2011 12:14 PM, PDT | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

Director: Frédéric Jardin Writer: Nicolas Saada Starring: Tomer Sisley, Joey Starr, Julien Boisselier, Serge Riaboukine, Laurent Stocker, Samy Seghir, Dominique Bettenfeld, Adel Bencherif, Birol Ünel, Lizzie Brocheré In the time span of a brutally intense 24 hours -- including a sleepless night for everyone involved in the film -- director Frédéric Jardin's Sleepless Night begins with a drug heist gone horribly awry and snowballs into a relentless powerhouse of non-stop action from that point onward. In a tale in which there are very few good guys and countless shades of baddies, it is difficult to surmise where the protagonist, Vincent (Tomer Sisley), falls. As fate would have it, Vincent possesses a bag of cocaine that was stolen from two cronies employed by a local drug lord named Marciano (Serge Riaboukine). Marciano therefore kidnaps Vincent's son and offers Vincent a trade -- the boy for the cocaine. Left with no other choice, »

Tiff 2011: Sleepless Night Review

16 September 2011 12:02 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Frederic Jardin's Sleepless Night is a taut, claustrophobic, and breathless chase and one of the most exciting films I've seen at Tiff.  Once night falls in the film, Jardin never breaks the tension as we follow a desperate father wind his way through a nightclub with no way out, no elaborate plan, and no easy solution to his dilemma.  Even more remarkable is how the film introduces so many players but keeps jumping around as different factions close in on our protagonist and his only options are to run, fight, hide, or all of the above.  It's usually "all of the above." Sleepless Night hits the ground running as we see dirty cops Vincent (Tomer Sisley) and Manuel (Laurent Stocker) rob a duffel bag filled with cocaine from a couple of criminals.  During the robbery, Vincent gets recognized and as retaliation Jose Marciano (Serge Riaboukine)—mobster, nightclub owner, and rightful »

DVD Playhouse—March 2011

By

Allen Gardner

127 Hours (20th Century Fox) Harrowing true story of Aron Ralston (James Franco, in another fine turn), an extreme outdoorsman who finds himself trapped in a remote Utah canyon, his arm pinned between two boulders, with no help nearby, no communication to the outside world, and dim prospects for survival, to say the least. Director Danny Boyle manages to prove again that he’s one of the finest filmmakers working today by making a subject that is seemingly uncinematic a true example of pure cinema. Inventive, breathtaking, funny, and horrifying, often all at once. Amber Tamblyn and Kate Mara make a memorable, brief appearance as hikers who connect with Ralston during his journey. Also available on Blu-ray disc. Bonuses: Commentary by Boyle, producer Christian Colson, co-writer Simon Beaufoy; Deleted scenes; Featurettes. Widescreen. Dolby and DTS-hd 5.1 surround.
