Night Across the Street
The final film from prolific Chilean director Raúl Ruiz (Three Crowns of the Sailor, That Day), Night Across the Street draws from the writings of author Hernán del Solar to tell the tale of aging office worker Don Celso (Sergio Hernandez), whose intimate conversations with poetry teacher Jean Giono (Christian Vadim) offer a vivid reflection of an imaginative childhood spent lost in conversation with Long John Silver (Pedro Villagra) and going to the cinema with the Chilean Ludwig van Beethoven (Sergio Schmied). Later, as Don feels death closing in, the veil that separates the mundane from the fantastical seems to wear thinner by the moment. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
