#1332 The Sunlit Night

Beitrag von Kasi Mir »

"The Sunlit Night" is the english-language debut of German director David Wnendt, who first got noted with his neo-nazi drama "Kiregerin" back in 2011 before directing movie adaptations of german bestsellers "Feuchtgebiete" and "Er ist wieder da". "The Sunlit Night" is not only the his first english-language project, but also his first motion picture for which he did not even co-write the screenplay. That one was written by Rebecca Dinerstein Knight, who also wrote the 2015 novel the script was based on. The film was shot entirely pre-pandemic and premiered at the 2019 Sundance festival, and was also show at the Filmfest Hamburg in October that year. Due to the pandemic, it never got a theatrical release in the US and was eventually released via streaming in the summer of 2020. More than a year later, the film will finally reach some theatre screens in Wnendt's home country.

Here's the trailer for "The Sunlit Night":

And how did you enjoy the film (which was almost 20 minutes shorter than its listing in the IMDb suggests)? What did you think of the story about an artist fleeing the dysfunctional New York family to paint a bard in the Lofoten region of Norway. What did you think of the performances, most notably comedienne Jenny Slate (who started out with stints on Jimmy Fallon's late-night show and "Saturday Night Live", and is mostly know for her voice work on numerous animated movies and TV shows) but also Fridtjov Såheim as taciturn artist Nils Auerman, and Alex Sharp as the grieving Yasha? Plus, what did you think of the bit players, from Gillian Anderson to Zack Galifianakis? Write down your thoughs about the film in a reply to this post.
