Dreaming of France: Ils Vivent La Nuit directed by & starring Ben Affleck

Here’s another one 2017's top ten films based on a book. FYI, I’ll be putting that list out sometime this week.

Starring, co-written (along with author Dennis LeHane) and directed by Ben Affleck, Live by Night comes to screens in the US, Canada and the UK and a host of other European countries on January 13th*, France sees it on January 18th.

Below is the French trailer for what they call Ils Vivent La Nuit. I’m curious to know from the French speakers out there if this is an exact translation or an approximation.

In addition to Affleck, the cast includes Zoe Saldana (Bradley Coopers old girlfriend) who looks like she kicks some major ass!, Elle Fanning (Dakota’s sister), Scott Eastwood (Clint’s son), Brendan Gleeson (Domhnall’s dad), Sienna Miller (Jude’s ex) and Chris Cooper who worked on the Affleck-directed The Town

And now that you know who everyone is, if this trailer is any indication, they all speak French fluently! 

Here’s the dubbed bande-annonce for my friends linking up with Paulita’s Dreaming of France meme

No matter the language, it looks good to me. Et vous?
