An example above :
Cette soirée s'est très bien passée.That evening went very well.Isn't "that evening" a precise moment (a particular evening) ?
Even though it is a particular evening, it is ‘that evening in its entirety’ that is being referred to - the evening throughout its duration went well. It can be difficult to grasp, but as these are written by native French speakers, you can be confident that the French distinctions are accurate.
