When Night Is Falling Reviews
The music is exquisite, especially the deep cello that adds atmosphere to the entire movie.
This was also one of the first lesbian movies I watched where one or both of the main characters doesn't end up killing herself, being killed, going straight or any other grotty ending!
I'll grant I can't give it a 100% because there are small and odd flaws in it that you can't help but notice. (Like at the end when you wonder to yourself, now is the dog alive again or is this the beginning of a zombie movie?)
All in all though it is a feast for the eyes, the ears and the brain! Watch it and marvel.
I found the acting ordinary, the chemistry non-existent, though Petra's seduction of Camille was intriguing and enjoyable. The cinematography was pedestrian and the music intrusive.
The storyline itself was fine - I just think it could have been performed and filmed better. Although regarding the storyline, for a romance movie there was precious little, well, romance. The only saving aspects were the sensual love scenes, yes and the lobby kiss too, and the circus performers.
What makes it a classic however is the epic performance of Tom Melissis as Hang Glider #2.
