After "Go Hear the Mermaid Sing", "Night Falls" is another film by director Patricia Rozma that walks on the edge of heterosexuality and homosexuality. The film name comes from Bergman's film "Fanny". The conclusion of "With Alexander": "When the night falls, all the evil spirits are all around..."

She then took shots with the theme of "how people are uneasy with the status quo"; then, she began a series of journeys to explore her deepest desires: first, the blow of the death of her pet dog, the spark of her first encounter with Patra in the laundry, and Patra's intrusion After a subtle change in her life, to questioning her relationship with Martin, Camille gradually became more and more aware of what she wanted.
