WHITE NIGHT |
SynopsisBased on a true story, the film describes the process of detoxification and rehabilitation of a convicted prisoner, Charlie, aided by another prisoner, Shlomo, and other key personnel of the Prison Service, who help make this project a success. The film also presents the bond of friendship developed between the inmates who came to prison from different environmental, ideological and social backgrounds. The prison, despite its harsh environment, manages to connect the groups, bridge the gaps and create a deep and positive friendship.
“White Night” is a smoothly narrated all-male drama, fairly engrossing for those with a taste for the genre. Despite B&W lensing and use of real inmates in a real prison, it comes up short on hard-hitting realism, onscreen violence and fashionable cynicism, which dates it a bit and targets it for softer TV auds.”
