Synopsis

A vertiginous, infinite and unique walk through every nighttime setback. Sex, drugs and drinking alternate between encounter and encounter, creating a above-board follow-on in front of a camera as curious as it is audacious, that dares to cover everything.

What are people saying?

  • Lucas Granero's rating of the film La noche

    Damos vueltas en la noche y somos consumidos por el fuego diría Debord. Viaje hacia el fin de la noche diría Cèline. Las giras nocturnas que Castro realiza y ejecuta en su película están en sintonía con las de aquellos escritores pero hay aquí algo que se ausenta de todas ellas: la presencia de un cuerpo que se entrega, uno que pesa y que jamás deja de buscar, perdido en la oscuridad, ese contacto vital con el otro.

  • El Biffo's rating of the film La noche

    Neo-Realist Queer sex/drugs film is a bit too real to be erotic but too fake/contrived to be a home movie.

  • Maribou's rating of the film La noche

    A grim, unrelenting odyssey following a gay man through Buenos Aires on his quest for sex & escape through a forlorn world of trans sex workers, their clients, cocaine & alcohol. Everyone gets used in pursuit of the next high. The realism is brutal & the pacing excruciatingly slow: sex has never been less erotic; the shirt-shopping scene nearly killed me with boredom. A tough film to sit through but it stays with you
