Our setting is a two-star hotel in Paris that seems suspended in the 70’s. In what time frame is this movie set? The riots on the streets outside the hotel seem to refer, rather than to a distant May 1968, to our current times of European crisis. At night and during these revolts, an Italian gay couple arrives at the Occidental Hotel, a microcosm that will represent that night all of Europe and where almost the entire film will take place.
