Elegiac, witty and deeply reflective, "Night Across the Street" strikes a mature and complex tone.
Unusually suffused with the contrast between experience and memory, reality and surreality.

The way Ruiz uses such giddy flourishes in the name of looking back on one's life is both thrillingly irreverent and surprisingly moving.
The film's like wandering unescorted in someone else's mind ... It becomes more beautifully melancholic as you remember it.
Playful and wildly imaginative to the last, this film shows Ruiz going out dreaming, and laughing.
