Before Twilight (Polish: Jeszcze nie wieczór) is a 2008 Polish comedy film drama directed by Jacek Bławut.

The film is about a group of old retired theatre actors in a retirement home for actors who aim to regroup and stage Goethe's Faust. The film stars a number of esteemed veteran Polish actors including Irena Kwiatkowska and Roman Kłosowski, who plays Nostradamus.[1]

The film, produced in 2008, was featured at the 2008 Polish Feature Film Festival[2] where it won a Silver Lion award for director Jacek Bławut and picked up several other awards. It was later released theatrically in Poland on May 15, 2009.

The Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra were invited to perform part of the soundtrack.


The idea was to gather an all-star cast of veteran actors, including those who starred in movies or stage plays as early as before World War II. Unfortunately the movie suffered from such a long pre-production phase that many of the actors already cast had passed before the shooting started, with such notable names as Leon Niemczyk, Gustaw Holoubek, Lidia Wysocka, Irena Malkiewicz, Zdzisław Mrożewski. This led to major changes in the script.
