A sublime portrait of male friendship and youth culture largely pieced together from snapshots of the moments between dusk and dawn. Written and directed by Michał Marczak, All These Sleepless Nights straddles the line between documentary and narrative fiction with its remarkable young cast playing versions of themselves. Art school friends Krzysztof and Michał’s nights are a hedonistic haze of cigarettes and cocaine. The pair, who share living space and world views, wax philosophical in Warsaw’s clubs and parties as they flit between lovers and friendships throughout this character-driven film. Similarly to Mia Hansen-Løve’s Eden, music makes up the backbone of the film – whether it’s Caribou’s “Can’t Do Without You” blasting out the speakers at an open-air party as the sun comes up or a rendition of “Colours of the Wind” from Disney’s Pocahontas in the early hours of the morning. Cinematographers Michał Marczak and Twardowski Maciej paint a picture of the city so vivid that you can almost feel the crisp morning air as day breaks in this experimental documentary that perfectly captures what it feels like to be young and unconcerned with tomorrow.
