After 20 years of what he thought was a happy marriage, Richard finds out his wife, Maria, is having an affair. And although this is the first he has discovered of her infidelities… this is hardly her first affair. Needing time to reflect, Maria spends the night in a hotel across the street. There, to her bewilderment, she is visited by the ghosts of her (many) lovers past, including the 25-year-old version of Richard. Seeing the young and handsome Richard in his prime rekindles Maria’s desire for him and leaves her wondering how they got to where they are now. Together, Richard and Maria examine their histories, relationships, and affairs, searching for the answer. ON A MAGICAL NIGHT is an enchanting and whimsical comedy that playfully blurs the lines between imagination and reality. Will this magical night be enough to save Richard’s and Maria’s marriage? Or will the truths revealed tear them apart for good? (In French with subtitles) — G.S.
