Last Night’s Symphonie is a modern re-imagining of Hector Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique. It takes place during a day in the life of Hector, a young man with a runaway imagination. Hector enjoys a night out on the town only to face the consequences the following day. At a party, Hector meets an adventurous young woman, and the two of them embark on a night of romantic spontaneity. However, Hector hides a secret that could send his fantasy world crashing down around him.
Gothamist describes the film as “a visual compliment to Berlioz’s 184-year-old masterpiece” and declares that it “ought to resonate with anyone who’s experienced a night of flirtation, inebriation, and inter-borough transportation.”
