Goodnight Nobody

2010 / Switzerland / 77min

"Goodnight Nobody" takes us on a journey through night, space and time. Four protagonists from four different continents share the same handicap: they can't sleep. With varying tactics, they resign themselves to the fact that they must live around the clock without interruption. Four ways of killing time.

Their stories follow the rhythm of the night, like flickering dreams in calm REM sleep. Narrations become fragments, the transition between reality and fantasy begins to flow and develop suction, making the feeling of sleeplessness palpable. A hypnotic journey through the most beautiful of all film settings: the night.
