A hidden gem
I wasn't prepared to see this movie, I switched the TV on, zapped around, and stopped, because the few seconds I looked at without knowing what's all about, where and when it plays were enough to fascinate. A slow, very calm camera, a half absurd, but totally natural conversation with actors being as real as real life is. First after the movie ended I found out what its name was, so I came to see if I find any information here. Well, it wasn't much.
In my opinion this movie deserves a 9 from an international viewer, but a clean 10 from somebody who knows Romania. Fantastic director (Lucian Pintilie is well known on the European cinematic scene), fantastic - despite its simplicity and linearity - script, professionally developing plot, great actors - and I really mean great, on best international level - and a very fine, sensible psychological and sociological study.
I am deeply moved and still - after many hours - enthusiastic. The movie deserves standing ovations.
