Carnage, directed by Roman Polanski and photographed by Pawel Edelman, takes place entirely in an apartment, mostly in the living room. It unfolds in real-time, over the film's roughly 74 minute runtime (not including the end credits). The weather outside the apartment is fairly overcast. The film starts during the day and ends in early evening. How did they control the lighting during shooting? All I could find out was that it was shot on a set. Were the views from outside the windows simulated with a fake city backdrop? Were they digitally composited in? The end credits featured several visual effects people.
This is a beautiful looking film. The blocking is masterful, and the lighting and set design are done such that the film is never visually flat or boring.Blu-Ray screenshots
