About the Movie

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. A playfully elegiac film from the great Raul Ruiz (MYSTERIES OF LISBON), conceived to be seen only after his death, NIGHT ACROSS THE STREET is a beautiful final masterwork exploring the director’s favorite subjects: fiction, history and life itself.

Night Across The Hill

Alleged great director who made a film that as we say was like watching paint dry. It moved toward no conclusion, had no conflict and was contrived at every turn. It was as if the director was saying,"Look at me, I am educated."

Surreal Adaptation of a Life

A strange film filled with interesting characters and sets. Feels more like a painting, or a poem than a movie at times.
