"Shades of Day" is a suspenseful Hollywood fable based on Fyodor Dostoyevsky's classic novella "White Nights"(considered one of the greatest love stories ever written), but here transferred to modern day Los Angeles. It's the first part of our "Dostoevsky-L.A" project, which also will include "Crime and Punishment, LA" and "Idiot, L.A". The film crosses and re-crosses the thin line that separates tragedy from comedy. It introduces us to the enchanting Linda, whose life is centered around a planned reunion with her former lover Paul. Her plans change in remarkable ways as she encounters an extraordinary cast of characters, including a new lover and a movie producer who is pursued by the Mafia.Written by

I have seen "Shades of day" in the private screening and the very first word that comes to my mind when I think about this film is Exceptional.
This movie has everything: love story, murderer, action, even ghosts. ;) And everything in it is shown in a really original and creative way, that makes you wonder and gives a different perspective.
I think its strongest point are the characters, even after the end of the movie you don't forget them, but keep thinking about them. I've watched the movie more than once and, what was surprising to me, every time I watched it, I discovered something new about each person. Especially Linda - I hated her at first, but later, well, I started to understand her behavior and motives too. And "talking to the soul of the Universe" motive - I simply love it. :)
I wish I could watch more films like this one in cinemas in my country. IMO "Shades of Day" restores faith in good, intelligent cinematography, so you must see it!
