Aiden Carter ist nicht nur unerträglich arrogant, er lässt seine Assistentin auch regelmäßig Zeugin seiner heißen Büro-Eskapaden werden. Als er sein Interesse plötzlich auf Lily Parker lenkt, muss sie alles geben, um ihm widerstehen zu können. Doch ihr Chef beherrscht ganz miese Tricks. Zusammen mit Lilys bester Freundin lockt er sie in den Desire Night Express, einem ganz besonders verbotenem Zug. Unmöglich kann sie ein ganzes Wochenende in dieser Umgebung mit ihrem Chef verbringen, ohne sich ihm zu ergeben. Aber Aiden Carter selbst gibt ihr den Schlüssel für ihre Flucht vor ihm und ihren Gefühlen in die Hand.

It depicts the interior of the cafe, with a half-curtained doorway in the center background leading, presumably, to more private quarters. The five customers depicted in the scene have been described as „three drunks and derelicts in a large public room huddled down in sleep or stupor. One scholar wrote, „The cafe was an all-night haunt of local down-and-outs and prostitutes, who are depicted slouched at tables and drinking together at the far end of the room. In wildly contrasting, vivid colours, the ceiling is green, the upper walls red, the glowing, gas ceiling lamps and floor largely yellow.

The paint is applied thickly, with many of the lines of the room leading toward the door in the back. The perspective looks somewhat downward toward the floor. In a jocular passage of a letter Van Gogh wrote to his brother, Theo, the artist said Ginoux had taken so much of his money that he’d told the cafe owner it was time to take his revenge by painting the place. Today I am probably going to begin on the interior of the café where I have a room, by gas light, in the evening. In the first days of September 1888, Van Gogh sat up for three consecutive nights to paint the picture, sleeping during the day. Little later, he sent the water-colour, copying the composition and again simplyfing the colour scheme on order to meet the simplicity of Japanese woodblock prints. Van Gogh’s Cafe Terrace at Night, showing outdoor tables, a street scene and the night sky, was painted in Arles at about the same time.

It depicts a different cafe, a larger establishment on the Place du Forum. Van Gogh wrote many letters to his brother Theo van Gogh, and often included details of his latest work. The artist wrote his brother more than once about The Night Café. According to Meyer Schapiro, „there are few works on which has written with more conviction. I have tried to express the terrible passions of humanity by means of red and green.

Everywhere there is a clash and contrast of the most alien reds and greens, in the figures of little sleeping hooligans, in the empty dreary room, in violet and blue. Theo: „In my picture of the Night Café I have tried to express the idea that the café is a place where one can ruin oneself, go mad or commit a crime. So I have tried to express, as it were, the powers of darkness in a low public house, by soft Louis XV green and malachite, contrasting with yellow-green and harsh blue-greens, and all this in an atmosphere like a devil’s furnace, of pale sulphur. He also wrote: „It is color not locally true from the point of view of the stereoscopic realist, but color to suggest the emotion of an ardent temperament.
