Movie Info

The magical Mole Antonelliana (the cavernous Museum of Cinema in Turin, Italy) is the setting and inspiration for a very unlikely love story. One fateful evening, Martino, an avid cinephile and the museum's timid night watchman, comes to the aid of Amanda, an enchanting young fast-food cook on the run from the police after dousing her overbearing boss with hot oil. Martino's dreamy kingdom of silent movie characters becomes a sanctuary for Amanda, as she awaits rescue by her devilish car-jacking

There's plenty here to delight cinephiles.

So taken with its own love of cinema, it forgets to lead you down the necessary dramaturgical path to make you fall in love, too.

A movie that longs for a return to a cinema that, rather than marketing, merchandise and corporate synergy, is about the mysteries that flicker to life after the lights go down.

It has a droll sensibility but is marred by dirge-like pacing.

This impassioned yet somewhat too precious fable from writer-director Davide Ferrario feels calculated to make a cineaste swoon, and yet . . . it never quite does.

Davide Ferrario -- who is also a film critic -- has a clear idea what movie love should look like, and almost none at all about real love.

Reveals an immense gift for storytelling that blends sentimental quirkiness with wry satire.

After Midnight is captivating in its renegade freedom, but doesn't provide far-reaching vision.

Boxoffice Magazine threatens to sink into the sentimental bog of a Cinema Paradiso, but it's short enough and sharp enough to stay afloat

A beautiful and beguiling film about love, cinema, and love of cinema...has the quirky, breezy quality of a bicycle ride by night.

Groucho Reviews

Weighed down by annoyingly precious voice-over narration ... and a few more precious conceits than any lighter-than-air love story should be asked to support.

A pleasure to behold and one any lover of cinema would be wise to keep on their radar of films to seek out.
