Short Film: ‘Closing Time’ is a Melancholy Masquerade Through Amsterdam

Closing Time Short Film

Why Watch? Absolutely gorgeous photography lays the cityscape foundation for two young people trying to make 4am stretch as long as possible. It’s a calm, smokey meditation blended with flirtation and the sensuality of Amsterdam itself.

What Will It Cost? About 11 minutes.
