Enter the moral maze - The Night of the Sunflowers review by Kurtz

Spoiler Alert
02/12/2008

“Night of the Sunflowers” is an absorbing drama about a shocking crime and the effect that it has on a tiny community in a disappearing rural Spain. It has a singular structure, following each of its characters in turn into the moral maze as they struggle to deal with the consequences of an attempted rape, and casting them adrift as they succumb to the temptations of revenge and corruption. This rather unnatural narrative device can be a little frustrating at times as we are introduced to character after character who we know to be destined for ultimate misery, but it’s well acted and the director has clearly stuck to his guns and resisted the temptation of a neat Hollywood-style finish.
