Storyline

In this impressionistic experimental drama, a woman walks a fine line between sanity and madness in a world of constant twilight. Nellie Benner plays a young woman who works at a filling station and lives a life of emotional isolation. No one seems to pay attention to her, and she lives in a run-down flat that looks as if it's decaying before our eyes. As the woman wrestles with the demons that are taking hold within her mind, she frequently confronts herself in the mirror, often while naked. An older man (Titus Muizelaar) who has seen the woman through her windows becomes fascinated with her, but his attempts to integrate himself into her world have strange and unexpected consequences, especially when a gun enters the picture. Shot almost entirely without dialogue. Written by lament

A haunting film
13 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Being rooted in the films of the 1950s/'60s/'70s, and with a liking for movies of even earlier decades, I approach contemporary items with extreme caution. 'Crepuscule' came to my attention quite by chance. It is fairly short (an hour and ten minutes); there is no dialogue and no story. It's a study of loneliness, I suppose. Nellie Benner plays a young woman who arrives in the city (Amsterdam), takes a room and gets a job in a carwash. She is isolated a bit odd and rather frightened, and her mental state deteriorates from bad to worse. Ms Benner handles her character's changes of personality very well, and makes us care about her. The scenes are thoughtfully shot in black-and-white and beautifully lit; the music and sound effects are interesting. It's a haunting film; the noir-ish rainy streets and night lights and many other images stay with you. I can't fault it.
