Movie Info

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. In this playfully elegiac film, loosely adapted from … More

It all has a sense of regret and almost relief. It haunts.

Raúl Ruiz's elegiac, enigmatic and mischievous final film.

New York Times
Top Critic

Unusually suffused with the contrast between experience and memory, reality and surreality.

Top Critic

These are the dreams of a man stepping out of this world, perhaps never more lucid and full of life.

Village Voice
Top Critic

The way Ruiz uses such giddy flourishes in the name of looking back on one's life is both thrillingly irreverent and surprisingly moving.

Time Out New York
Top Critic

Past, present, and future, and illusion and reality, dissolve as the film's scenes line up like marbles, all of equal weight and value.

Film Comment Magazine

The arty, poignant and thought-provoking sentimental film, about life as a never-ending journey, should appeal mostly to Ruiz's devoted fan base.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

The film's like wandering unescorted in someone else's mind ... It becomes more beautifully melancholic as you remember it.

Film-Forward.com

Playful and wildly imaginative to the last, this film shows Ruiz going out dreaming, and laughing.

Full Review… | February 4, 2013
Screen International

Across the film's second half, as is sometimes his wont, Ruiz begins to cast aside the genteel, tradition-of-quality trappings misleadingly suggested by the first act and indulges in the lurid fancy of pulp fiction and horror.

Audience Reviews for Night Across the Street

An old man recalls his childhood, when he used to carry on conversations with Long John Silver and Ludwig van Beethoven, as he waits in his boarding home for the man who will kill him to arrive. This defiantly absurd meditation on death gains contextual poignancy due to the fact that writer/director Raul Ruiz was gravely ill while making it and died before it could be released.
