Before this Night is Over...
2 June 2019 | by manfromplanetxSee all my reviews

An exceptional film from Peter Solan places us amid the relationships the interactions playing out between a handful patrons and the employees of a trendy Slovak nightclub. Overt the course of just one evening this confined setting film is a clever and brilliant psychological study. Wonderfully innovative & improvisational filmmaking, having no substantial plot the film is however totally engaging from start to finish. With great emotional depth the complexities of social interaction of our human psyche are thoughtfully portrayed building an incisive engrossing drama . A terrific cast of characters are accompanied with a swing band and dancing girls who keep the patrons entertained throughout, Masterly crafted from the director & crew, Kým sa skoncí táto noc is vibrant universally appealing an outstanding highlight of mid 60s Czech New Wave... Highly Recommended !!
