Josephine (Binoche) travels to the hostile icy landscape of the remote North in search of her explorer husband. As winter descends and determined not to turn back she finds companionship with an Inuit woman (Kikuchi). With the elements against them and their survival reliant on each other it becomes clear they are waiting for a man they both love.
In 1908, in Greenland, the arrogant and bold Josephine Peary (Juliette Binoche) forces the experienced guides Bram Trevor (Gabriel Byrne) and Ninq (Orto Ignatiussen) to pursuit the expedition of her husband Robert Peary that is looking for a route to the North Pole. Along their dangerous journey, Bram dies and Josephine and Ninq reach a support outpost to wait for Robert and meet the Eskimo girl Allaka (Rinko Kikuchi) that is living in an igloo. However, Ninq advises that they should return since the cold and long winter is coming and there is no chance to survive in the post. However Josephine decides to stay and soon she learns why Allaka is living on the spot.
"Nadie quiere la noche", a.k.a. "Endless Night", is a film directed by the Spanish director Isabel Coixet. The narrative is cold like the environment and too long for a short storyline. The performances are top-notch, but Josephine Peary is too unpleasant and the film should have had more feeling. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "Ninguém Deseja a Noite" ("Nobody Wants the Night")
