      Jack L Too much days and not enough nights. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/23/23 Full Review farah r A peculiar, unfamiliar drama that lacks every aspect of a good movie. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Gloomy and tragic throughout. A few warmer moments shine through, but overall a pretty dark flick. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Bit of a strange movie. Very hard to follow. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member A family unites at a country house, and old wounds open as the patriarch confronts his failing health. Days and Nights is the film equivalent of Chekhov for Dummies. All the plot elements of The Seagull are checked off, but writer/director/star Christian Camargo doesn't have the same ear for subtext that the great Russian Master made famous. In Chekhov, the beat-to-beat movements of a scene are subtle and logical, but in Carmargo's adaptation, the logic is missing and the narrative is choppy. Stars Jean Reno, Katie Holmes, and Ben Winshaw are wasted on small and under-used parts, but William Hurt brings a vitality to the ailing patriarch that makes the film momentarily fun and interesting. Overall, anyone interested in Chekhov on film should check out The Duel or Vanya on 42nd Street instead of this weak effort. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member It starts slowly than it gets better and better, with some special moments, but it loses something just at the end. Anyway I enjoyed it a lot. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Diego Semerene Slant Magazine The drama over dinner comes in small analgesic portions, and the secrets feel canned and the dialogue is too pretty to be believable. Rated: 1.5/4 Sep 26, 2014 Full Review Farran Smith Nehme New York Post The cast, so packed with talent that Jean Reno and Cherry Jones barely register, is stuck with stagey dialogue. Juliet Rylance, in the Nina part, has a particularly hard time. Rated: 2/4 Sep 24, 2014 Full Review Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News In a movie, nothing good ever seems to happen at a country house. And when it comes to this film, nothing very interesting happens, either. Rated: 1/5 Sep 24, 2014 Full Review Nicholas Bell IONCINEMA.com This is simply another tedious glimpse of familial dysfunction. Rated: 2/5 Sep 5, 2019 Full Review Asia Frey Lagniappe (Mobile, AL) Despite the theatrical mannerisms, the story can't help but periodically pick up steam and become compelling. I don't think that was a bad film, I just didn't connect with it. Aug 22, 2018 Full Review John Noonan FILMINK (Australia) Lines are read as if unrelated to the ones that came before it, giving conversations a stilted, unnatural coldness.
