Italian A feature chicflik
28 September 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

WHEN THE NIGHT is a class act with strong performances, particularly from leading lady Claudia Pandolfi as a mother on the edge caring for her screaming two year old and taking him to rent an isolated alpine flat from glowering mountain guide Timi (Mussolini in VINCERE),who has his own issues with defective mothering.

It has the elements of a thriller - menace, surprise twists, violent incident, suspense - but the question is not who done it but will they or won't they.

Director Comencini is getting better at delivering these accomplished women's fictions and here she's got first line technicians and great alpine scenics to add to the mix.
