Audience Reviews for All Night Long
For her first feature film of the 1980s, Belgian director Chantal Akerman spun this marvellous web of a film. TOUTE UNE NUIT spans the duration of one hot summer night in Brussels. There are no characters to follow, no stories to keep up with. Instead, as in Akerman's earlier works, time is the main character. Only here, that time has a definite name: the night. All through the night, we see various people, inhabitants of this bland, drealy location, engaging in all sorts of nocturnal encounters. A definite melancholy tone floods the entire film, marking it as one of Akerman's absolute best.
