WHITE NIGHT |
Base on a true story. A film describing 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 describes the bond of friendship developed between the inmates who reached prison from different backgrounds-environmental, ideological and social. The place, despite its harsh character, manages to connect the groups, bridge the gaps and create a deep and positive friendship.
Variety“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.”
