  • Summary: Infused with humor, intelligence, and passion, After Midnight is a masterful homage to the silent movie era. Ferrario's daring visual choices and unconventional storytelling make for a charming celebration of love and cinema. (Avatar Films)

  1. Ferrario deft use of old silent-movie footage - especially Buster Keaton - makes After Midnight enchanting.
  2. 75
    An enchanting romantic comedy between two lost souls in the most unexpected of places.

    Gorgeous high-definition digital photography adds to the rapture; the museum resembles a cavernous magic lantern with its seductive plays of light and shadow.
  4. Diverting and often charming, but it never really holds together.

    Ferrario has fun with antique footage and exhibits from the museum, but there's a lack of urgency or sufficient charm to engage.
  6. 60
    As a story, it never develops beyond the routine. Still, the aesthetic philosophizing works as a framework for daring visual experiments.
  7. So taken with its own love of cinema, it forgets to lead you down the necessary dramaturgical path to make you fall in love, too.

    While I enjoyed the fist two movies, I found the adolescent and self centered bickering boring and silly as the characters enter middle age.While I enjoyed the fist two movies, I found the adolescent and self centered bickering boring and silly as the characters enter middle age. Good health, lovely children, dream jobs, and no financial worries and they are sill filled with selfish angst about not getting something more! It was set in Greece, but you only get claustrophobic glimpses of the island and the long hotel scene could have been filmed in a Best Western motel anywhere in the world. Even the Celine character complains of it's blandness. Maybe this is an accurate image of our present culture, shellfish and narcissistic, but I hope it is only a phase because it is vapid and immature. Expand
