Movie Info

A stunning, dream-like odyssey through a beautiful and otherworldly Helsinki over the course of one evening, CONCRETE NIGHT follows the impressionable 14-year-old Simo as he keeps his soon-to-be incarcerated brother company. The official Finnish submission to the Academy Awards (R) for Best Foreign Language Film captures the pain and joy of youth through exquisite, eye-popping black-and-white cinematography.

  • This mawkish bummer about an ill-used teenage boy wandering around a surreally forbidding Helsinki is marred by a facile nihilism that trivializes the urban alienation it seeks to illuminate.

  • [The cinematography] amplifies the sense of desolation, but the images are poetic and stirring rather than debilitating; the dramatic lighting gives the rundown buildings and abandoned construction sites an otherworldly look.

  • Black-and-white bleak never has looked more beautiful.

    March 31, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • This is the sort of film that you watch with a double consciousness, constantly distracted by the battle between visionary impulse and rank cliché.

    November 22, 2017 | Full Review…
  • A powerful piece of work, beautifully depicted, this is all the more remarkable as so much of it rests on the shoulders of young Brotherus, in his debut feature role.
