The Hyderabad Film Club is screening a Danish Film 'Day And Night', at Sarathi Studios, on 17th September, at 6:30pm.

Set entirely within a car with a 2-camera set-up, Day and Night was directed and co-written by 32-year-old Danish filmmaker Simon Staho in 2005. It is about the last day in the life of a man who decides to commit suicide.

The cast includes Mikael Persbrandt, Sam Kessel, Maria Bonnevie, Michael Nyqvist, Lena Endre, Hans Alfredson, Pernilla August, Fares Fares, Marie Goranzon, Tuva Novotny and Erland Josephson.

The movie starts with a voice-over (Erland Josephson) telling the audience that on Sept. 11, 2003, a man named Thomas committed suicide by shooting himself in the head. The rest of the movie depicts the events of the fateful day, leading up to this act, with Thomas (Mikael Persbrandt) meeting, for the last time, various people who have meant something to his life.

Thomas meets all of them in, or close to, his car. The tone of the film is set with the first encounter - the divorced Thomas drives his son, Emil (Sam Kessel), to school, trying to upset the boy and get him to hate his father. After dropping the kid at school, Thomas meets his mistress, Sarah (Maria Bonnevie), with whom he quarrels.

Next, Thomas picks up his old friend, Jakob (Michael Nyqvist), driving with him through the rain. Thomas tells him that he knows Jakob has had an affair with Anna, Thomas' ex-wife - to which Jakob agrees. After drinking in a garage, Thomas picks up Anna (Lena Endre), and their conversation is filled with poison, but Anna still wants them to get back together again. Thomas, however, says he's agreed to let her have sole custody of Emil.

Simon Staho deepens and darkens the tragedy in this story of a man who hates himself and what he has become, and who finally commits the ultimate act. Staho based part of Thomas' character on Persbrandt┬┤s own.
