The_Long_Day_Closes_slide_18.jpg
Written and Directed by Terence Davies

Produced by Olivia Stewart and Angela Topping

Starring Majorie Yates and Leigh McCormick

"Indeed, it's primarily about the small, innocent but very real joys of being alive, recreated with great skill and never smothered by sentimentality. The stately camera movements; the tableaux-like compositions; the evocative use of music and movie dialogue; the dreamy dissolves and lighting - all make this a movie which takes place in its young protagonist's mind. Beautifully poetic, never contrived or precious, the film dazzles with its stylistic confidence, emotional honesty, terrific wit and all-round audacity." – Geoff Andrews, Time Out London

"Although undeniably beautiful, it's the purity of Davies' concentration that is ultimately most heartbreaking - the distillation of events, the sense of mental performance.  For Davies, the projected shaft of light is a form of divine radiance.  But The Long Day Closes is as tactile as it is ethereal.  More redemptive than nostalgic, the movie is a celestial vaudeville in a fastidiously grubby heaven".
– J. Hoberman, The Village Voice
