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 boyfriend Angel. Spellbound by the museum, Amanda develops a surprising romantic connection with Martino, who until now has only found companionship in his celluloid dreams. Torn between her newfound feelings for Martino and her troubled relationship with the irresistible Angel, Amanda attempts to balance the affections of her two suitors. Misadventure and chaos ensue as the characters become embroiled in this dubious love triangle.

Critic Reviews for After Midnight

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (13)

There's plenty here to delight cinephiles.

Aug 5, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

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.

Jun 24, 2005 | Full Review…

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.

Jun 24, 2005 | Full Review…

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

Apr 21, 2005 | Rating: 3/5

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.

Apr 21, 2005 | Full Review…

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.
