Movie Info

On the verge of a forced retirement, Don Celso, an elderly office worker begins to relive both real and imagined memories from his life - a trip to the movies as a young boy with Beethoven, listening to tall tales from Long John Silver, a brief stay in a haunted hotel. Stories hide within stories and the thin line between imagination and reality steadily erodes, opening up a marvelous new world of personal remembrance and fantastic melodrama. In this playfully elegiac film, loosely adapted from the fantastical short stories of Chilean writer Hernán del Solar, Raul Ruiz (MYSTERIES OF LISBON) has crafted a final masterwork on his favorite subjects: fiction, history and life itself.

Audience Reviews for Night Across the Street

  • Jul 15, 2015
    In "Night Across the Street," Celso(Sergio Hernandez) may like to play marbles but that does not mean at his advanced age, that he is losing his. So, he attends classes where he befriends Giono(Christian Vadim), a famed writer from abroad, who he tells the story of his childhood where he idolized Beethoven(Sergio Schmied) to such a point that he got in trouble for it. Celso also talks about the man who is coming to kill him in the present. As a semi-autobiographical film, "Night Across the Street" confirms what many of us what have already suspected, namely that Raul Ruiz was one strange kid, who would one day grow up to make the kind of unique movies he eventually would.(One could also make the case that any kid that precocious would have a hard time realistically surviving puberty but whatever.) And with his last film, he announces in style of his intention on going out on his terms to create one of his more memorably weird films.

    An old man recalls his childhood, when he used to carry on conversations with Long John Silver and Ludwig van Beethoven, as he waits in his boarding home for the man who will kill him to arrive. This defiantly absurd meditation on death gains contextual poignancy due to the fact that writer/director Raul Ruiz was gravely ill while making it and died before it could be released.
