Antoine is a social wannabe who drops an elusive aristocrat's name to get into an exclusive party. The name - Jordan - gets him whisked by two burly bodyguards into the office of the host, von Bulow, who won't accept Antoine's admission of lying, gives him $100,000, and promises $900,000 more when led to Jordan. Enticed by the money, Antoine, with the help of his friend Étienne, begins his search. He follows trails through Paris's night scene, gets beaten up and bitten, and meets Jordan's sister, Violaine. After a surreal night, he's hooked on her charms but leery of continuing his pursuit of Jordan. Von Bulow insists. Can he find Jordan, get his reward, and attract Violaine? Written by
Antoine De Caunes is a clever and funny TV-man who became a fairly good cinema actor. "Les morsures de l'aube" is his first movie as a director, and for me, not unforgettable. The storyline was a good start : a young nightclubber (by day, he sleeps in a swimming pool) tries any trick to go inside fashionable places. One day, he pretends to know a mysterious man called "Jordan". Another mysterious man gives him money to find this Jordan, the enquiry starts. First of all, Jordan has a sister, Violaine, played by Assia Argento. The brother and the sister are known as a scary couple, the live by night only, they bite people's neck and have weird manners... This story was not a bad idea I guess, and there is a lot of funny scenes, even some absurd situations. The photography is not bad, it looks like a long length advertising for a perfume or something. Assia Argento has a strong seduction power, Gérard Lanvin (the hero's great friend) plays as a real actor, but I'm afraid he is the only one ! When people talk, they quite don't open their mouth, the audience does not understand what they say, the best dialogs get lost by a poor or too indulgent actor direction. The end is a waste... I'm afraid that any "Buffy" episode is better than this movie. I gave it a 6/10 because I'm too kind.
