SHADES OF DAY is a suspenseful Hollywood fable based on Feodor Dostoyevsky's classic novella "White Nights". The film introduces us to the enchanting Linda whose life is centered around a planned reunion with her former lover Paul. Her plans change in remarkable ways as she encounters an extraordinary cast of characters,including a new lover and a movie producer who's pursued by the Mafia.
While SHADES OF DAY is set in modern-day Los Angeles, Dostoevsky's original story takes place in St.Petersburg during the season of eternal never-ending light when "one sunrise follows another with no more than half an hour of night in-between..."
Professional and Critical acclaim:
Shades of Day was selected by the Rutgers University's professor Gerard Pirog for his course in cinema along with the classic works by Bertolucci, Kurosawa,–
"The film has a magical look...Quite an achievement!
Jonathan Dana, producer, former Director of Acquisition and Development for
Samuel Goldwyn Company.
Crisply shot, the film has a gritty quality that captures the struggling underside of L.A. In some ways it is Director Sumin's hymn to Los Angeles".
Wade Major, film critic - ENTERTAINMENT TODAY
Francesca Elizabeth Miller, film critic - - IN L.A. MAGAZINE, NIGHTLIFE
"Well written, the ending will surprise you... it was definitely not what I expected."
