Night Across the Street (La noche de enfrente)

On the verge of a forced retirement, Don Celso, an elderly office worker begins to relive both real and imagined memories from his life - a trip to the movies as a young boy with Beethoven, listening to tall tales from Long John Silver, a brief stay in a haunted hotel. Stories hide within stories and the thin line between imagination and reality steadily erodes, opening up a marvelous new world of personal remembrance and fantastic melodrama.

Reviews & Comments

Ruiz’s movies resist both categorization and star ratings, and “Night,” filmed while the director was battling liver cancer (he died in August 2011 of a lung infection), is no different. Nominally based on stories by the Chilean writer Hernán del Solar, it’s an exuberantly Ruizian meditation on a man’s final days, fondly surreal and lit with a life’s wisdom. The title character, Don Celso (Sergio Hernández), is a stand-in for the filmmaker, and he skips easily between childhood memories and a weary present tense.
