Finland, 2013
Drama
  • Finnish

Synopsis

A stunning, dream-like odyssey through a beautiful and otherworldly Helsinki over the course of one evening, Concrete Night follows the impressionable 14-year-old Simo as he keeps his soon-to-be incarcerated brother company.

Our take

Finnish director Pirjo Honkasalo (3 Rooms of Melancholia) is also a cinematographer—which explains the stunning, inked black and white of her moody and subtly surreal paean to the uncertainty of adolescence growing up in poor surroundings. A nocturnal odyssey and an awakening, gorgeously realized.
