Domestic Trailer for Kick-Ass Thriller SLEEPLESS NIGHT

by     Posted 2 years, 153 days ago


The domestic trailer for the French action-thriller Sleepless Night has gone online.  The plot centers on a cop (Tomer Sisley) who steals drugs from a mobster (Serge Riaboukine), and the mobster retaliates by kidnapping the cop’s son.  When the cop goes back to exchange the stolen drugs for his son, the drugs go missing, and the cop goes on a frantic chase inside the mobster’s night club to rescue his son by any means possible.  It was one of the best films I saw at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, and I’m glad it’s about to hit stateside.  My review is quoted in the trailer, but I feel it’s important to note that the trailer inserts an exclamation point I didn’t use.  Exclamation points change the tone of a sentence, and I don’t think I’ve ever used one to make a serious point in a review.

My minor personal annoyance aside, Sleepless Night is still a great flick and you should check it out.  The movie hits VOD on April 17th, but you should see it with the energy of a packed theater when it opens on May 11th.  Hit the jump to watch the trailer.

Here’s the official synopsis for Sleepless Night:

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.

    Douche alert! Douche alert! Who cares if your sentence had an exclamation point in it? There was no need to take us out of the article because you want to talk about yourself. Just make it about the film/trailer (the shots, editing, acting, plot, etc.), man…
