In an unnamed snowy land, a husband and his wife wait in a remote hotel for their last chance for a child. The woman is cancer-ridden. However, a local orphanage in this desolate town has promised them a son. However, nothing is simple in the absurdist romp, What Happens at Night.
If you enjoy sussing out art film archetypes, What Happens at Night will be a fun game for you to play. The book screams out that it is IMPORTANT…mostly because it is set in a dreamlike world where unexpected things happen. However, my Fellini watching days are over, so it receives only 3 stars from me.
Thanks to Catapult and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
