在郊外的渡假屋裏,年輕導演為新劇本而採訪一位著名作家,希望從她口中認識1976年的校園大屠殺。作家當年熱衷社會運動,和其他學生領袖一齊憧憬改變國家的未來。在追憶同時,本片亦加插舞台上重演的警察虐待學生的場景,之後又放送一段一段看似毫無關連的情節,包括一位靚仔明星被邀參與上述導演的新片、咖啡店員工在不同的職業中「輪迴轉世」、蘑菇農場的縮時影片等等。

安諾查‧蘇維查康彭睽違七年的第二部長片無視類型規範和主題限制,大膽地混用歷史、偽紀錄片、戲劇甚至音樂錄像,探索泰國的前世今生。《入黑之時》贏得泰國「金像獎」的最佳電影、最佳導演和最佳剪接,令導演安諾查成為獲得泰國影壇最高殊榮的首位女性。

Arriving at a countryside house, a young filmmaker interviews a famous writer for her next script, presumably about the 1976 student massacre. The older woman recounts her past as a student activist who had great hopes that she and her fellow students would change their country for the better. Within the film is a re-enactment of police brutalizing the students by means of on-stage performance. The film continues to unfold into layers of narrative snippets, including a handsome movie star getting a script from the aforementioned filmmaker, a waitress who “reincarnates” into different professionals, a time-lapse video of a mushroom farm, and more.

Anocha’s sophomoric effort defies genre expectations and thematic constraints in an epic quest to encompass Thailand’s past and present with history, mockumentary, drama, and even a music video. By the Time It Gets Dark won Best Picture, Best Director and Best Editing at Thailand’s National Film Association Awards—a historic feat for a female-directed film.
