La Noche polar reaches for an announced eclipse, for a collective event which will undoubtedly take place, and which will be observed by eyes acting as though they were possessed by the disappearance of the moon. But the film constitutes first and foremost the intimate, secret drifting of a young man, whose opaque search is followed. This search develops somewhere between a series of more or less esoteric books, the entire cosmos, and the uncanny shelves of the library in which the protagonist works. The latter seems constantly shadowed by the potential, sudden appearance of a spectre. Indeed, the protagonist’s trajectory is marked by a melancholic wavering, a solipsism that demonstrates the loosening ties between beings and things: more of a movement towards erasure and disappearance than towards the search for a way of being in the world.
