Three intersecting ages of a man who can see the approach of death. Three rival souls. The final testament of Raúl Ruiz. LA NOCHE DE ENFRENTE is his last film. Shot between March and April 2011 in Santiago de Chile, it is a mysterious testament, the true meaning of which was not understood even by those who worked with him on the shoot. Raúl Ruiz conceived this film to be seen only after his death, a death which he knew was not far off. He told those close to him, his friends, that he was inspired by the tales of Hernan de Solar, by the father of one of his oldest friends, or again, to others that it was about his own childhood, or the childhood of one of his friends. All of these false leads had one simple goal: to lead those close to him astray, so as not to worry or sadden them. This film is a summary of his work. A moving and funny film.
