Slovakian film – BEFORE TONIGHT IS OVER – released on dvd and Blu Ray

Before Tonight Is OverBEFORE TONIGHT IS OVER (15) 1978 SLOVAKIA SLOAN, PETER DVD – £12.99 BLU RAY £19.99
Set entirely in a nightclub in a mountain ski resort over one eventful evening, Peter Solan’s Before Tonight is Over brings together an exceptional cast as they drink, dance, flirt, and fight in a delightful, kaleidoscopic character study.

Highly improvised and experimental in its approach, the film achieves a remarkable, intimate naturalism, offering a sharp critique of then-contemporary life as the characters gradually reveal their dreams, desires and disappointments. Once condemned for its depiction of societies’ vices, the radical Before Tonight is Over remains a potent work of wit and wisdom and is now regarded as one of the great gems of Slovak cinema.

In Slovak with English subtitles
