影評:

  • 導演哈尼斯保加納的第一部長片,靈感來自瑞士的真實刑案。《暗夜奔逃》賦予一個矛盾人物不同面向,成長經驗、壓抑過程和內心動蕩交織,成為無法釐清的網路。
  • 哈尼斯保加納以嫻熟的電影技巧,用聲音來表現主角精神快速衰退的過程。《銀幕日報》
  • 哈尼斯保加納第一次執導便拍出一部深刻的疏離之作,以冷眼旁觀的角度,觀察對自己不了解的人們。
  • 來自瑞士,一部鮮明而令人印象深刻的首部作品……本片字卡寫說《暗夜奔逃》根據真實故事改編……

 

Synopsis

How does one become a murderer? After a difficult childhood, Jonas Widmer seems to have found his way in life – the private young man from Berne is considered one of the most talented long-distance runners in Switzerland. In addition to his athleticism, Jonas works as a successful chef, maintains a relationship with his adoptive mother and is planning to move in with his girlfriend Simone. If only his recurring dreams about meeting his deceased brother who took his own life two years ago would just go away… It almost seems as if Jonas is being followed by a dark shadow. Unable to verbalise his internal struggles, the sensitive young man develops a tragic double life in an attempt to overcome his despair.

Reviews:

  • Director Hannes Baumgartner’s first feature film was inspired by a true Swiss crime. DER LÄUFER creates a differentiated picture of an ambivalent figure, entangled in the densely woven network of formative experiences, processes of repression and inner turmoil.
  • Its progressive use of sound as an accelerant to the main character's mental decline will distinguish Baumgartner's tightly focused and skilful film-making. Screen International
  • Baumgartner's impressively alienating debut doesn't finally profess to understand men who don't understand themselves. It just takes a steady, focused run into the void.
  • A stark and impressive debut from Switzerland..... The audience is told, via subtitles, that Midnight Runner is based on a true story....
