Based on the experiences of Hansen-Løve’s brother [and co-writer] Sven, the film follows Paul [Félix de Givry], a teenager in the underground scene of early-nineties Paris. With a parallel storyline featuring Daft Punk, the film’s described as “an intoxicating cocktail of euphoria and melancholy as alive as any nightclub.”
In the 90’s, French electronic music is developing at a fast pace. In this exiting period, Paul is taking his first steps as a DJ. With his best friend, they create a duo, “Cheers” and quickly find their audience. They will soon be caught up in a euphoric and short-lived rise and decline. Blinded by his passion, Paul will forget to build his life.
Eden also tells the story of the “French touch” generation, from 1992 to nowadays.
