A reformed criminal goes on the run in The Hanging Sun, an adaptation of Jo Nesbo’s novel Midnight Sun. The author also co-writes the screenplay of this fiction feature debut from Francesco Carrozzini, the photographer who helmed the documentary Franca: Chaos and Creation.

The closing film of Venice Film Festival, it’s well performed and gripping enough, though geographically confusing.Filmed in northern Norway, where the novel is set, it stars an international cast, all speaking English with a variety of accents.

Given that the conceit of the book revolves around 24-hour daylight at a certain time of year, the location is an honorable gesture, and handsomely filmed.
