Film Info


Three a.m., Zhongzheng Road, Taipei. The traffic of a 24/7 society throbs through the metropolis in constant waves. Mr. Kuo and his wife, Mrs. Lin, cook for the city’s sleepless. They work at night and sleep through the days, trying to keep afloat. Their eatery is a pit stop, a place of refuge, a warm bowl of rice. Directed by Nicole Vögele, Closing Time is a cinematographic meditation on the in-between moments; a kaleidoscopic journey that relies on colors, sensations, animals, typhoons, and a dark lilac sky—the materials of life; an attempt at capturing time; an exercise in just seeing.
