Actors Portray Daft Punk In French House Feature Film

There’s a new film about French house music premiering in September, and we finally have our first glimpse of the actors playing arguably the most influential duo in that genre’s history: Daft Punk.

Arnaud Azoulay and Vincent Lacoste (pictured above, left and above, right) will play Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter respectively in the film Eden. Directed by Mia Hansen-Løve, Eden will follow the rise of French electronic music throughout the ’90s. The film is described as a “largely autobiographical” narrative from the perspective of Paul (played by Félix de Givry), who is based off the director’s brother Sven Løve, a prominent French DJ in the early ’90s. Paul and his friend go on to form a duo called Cheers as they work their way through the French touch scene, with the film attempting to recreate some of the most famous parties and clubs from that era.

Sven Løve recently told French magazine Tsugi that Daft Punk will be providing three tracks for the film. According to Mia Hansen-Løve, the music rights alone cost her over half a million euros, but were necessary for the nightclub and big crowd scenes.

Eden is set to premiere during the Toronto International Film Festival Sept. 4-14. The film will also feature stars like Greta Gerwig (Frances Ha), Brady Corbet (Martha Marcy May Marlene), and Golshifteh Farahani (Body of Lies).

Some quotes:

PROVIDENCE (Providence #1)
“I’m going to kiss you now, and I don’t know if I’ll ever stop.”

REQUIEM (Providence #2)
“I exist for you. And I live for you. And I live to love you.”

EDEN (Providence #3)
“For a thousand years,
and then a thousand more… I will love you.”

“I need to hear you say it. I need to know you’re mine.” - “I’ve been yours since the second we met.”

“So you like her and you’re scared. Now what?” - “Nothing. It just sucks that I finally found the girl worth having and she’s too good for me.”

A BEAUTIFUL WEDDING (Beautiful #2.5)
“A Maddox boy will take you all the way to the edge, but if you go with him, he’ll follow you anywhere.”

“If the last year had taught me anything, it was that the end only led to one thing- a beginning.”

“When you think about something enough, you start dreaming about it. And when you dream about something enough, you just have to hope that it becomes a reality.”

“I was just thinking now was as good a time as any to acknowledge that you’re perfect and it wouldn’t suck if you fell madly in love with me anytime soon.”


Derek sighed as he stood up to go open the door, “Scott can I not just have one moment of pe-” Derek opened the door to find a person who he had never seen before bloodied and shivering on his door step.

Eden wasn’t sure where she was. After the attack on her and the rest of the Clan, how someone found them when they hadn’t been here that long still astounding her, she ordered Marcus and Sydney to take off with Charlee while she held them off.

She was older, stronger. She could do a lot more than they could and she wanted to keep them safe.

And she had. The hunters had been dealt with quickly and severely to the point that they wouldn’t hurt another vampire or person again. But not before getting a few in themselves. They came looking for vampires. They came with silver bullets, and dust, and mountain ash so that even though she had one the fight she might not win the war. Worried that she couldn’t call the others or stay here lest more came to investigate the commotion she ran.

But her vampire speed and stamina gave out on her quickly, and she was having trouble staying focused and in control of her body. Eden guessed her inner vampire sensed someone behind the door she was pounding on, desperate for help, but when it opened and a man was standing there she only got through, “Please….I need…h-” Before she passed out.


Eden is the name of a forthcoming film chronicling the rise of France’s electronic music scene through the eyes of DJ Sven Love, co-founder of the duo Cheers. Described as “largely autobiographical,” the film’s plot centers around a young man named Paul (played by Félix de Givry), who discovers raves and house music, and eventually forms his own DJ project. The film incorporates many of the clubs and parties synonymous with the scene, as well as prominent DJs like Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, aka Daft Punk. Above is a look at the actors cast to play the legendary duo (Arnaud Azoulay and Vincent Lacoste), Greta Gerwig, Brady Corbet, and Laura Smet. The film is set to premiere next month at the Toronto International Film Festival.
