"Superb, captivating, tender, often funny and frequently beautiful, When Night Is Falling is like a lyrical poem, deeply felt and perfectly formed. Rich, vibrant colours, romantic images—naked women swimming in clear blue water—a dusting of snow, a half-moon and always the night just a moment away."
