Movie Info

Characteristically penetrating, tough-minded, and masterfully composed, Geyrhalter's new documentary, Abendland, is a portrait of Europe at night, drawing together glimpses of a wide range of locations, milieus, activities, and themes, under the umbrella of a continent after nightfall. A film of extraordinary beauty but sinister implications - depictions of border controls, surveillance, and forcefully suppressed political protests predominate - Abendland is, both literally and figuratively, a dark vision of 21st-century Europe. -- (C) Official Site
