Ana Maria Guran,
Paul Hanganu loves two women. Adriana his wife and the mother of their daughter, the woman with whom he's shared the thrills of the past ten years, and Raluca the woman who has made him redefine himself. He has to leave one of them before Christmas.
Robert, a published poet and journalist from Bucharest, goes back home, to the village where he was born, which he hasn't visited since his mother's death. His relationship with his father is not a very good one, and the reconnection is not helped by the fact that the old man now lives with Iuliana. Over the next 24 hours, Robert will confront his past, in an outstanding effort to renegotiate his present. It is a war of readjustments: expectations, status and ambitions will be discussed in search of a certain existential clarity.Written by
The first impression was that is was another lousy movie about the poor east-European space. I have been fed up with stories about the past / current status of my home country. Point. No. The story - screenplay - which is fabulously compact and has an intrigue which is entirely credible. Andi Vasluianu, Alexandru Papadopol, along with the extrardinary performances of Ioana Flora and Mirela Oprisor are so natural! A movie that I surely would have missed easily thinking about how things are going in Romania and what people demand to watch. Great script, A+ directing, very good performances from the actors. Plus the initial cameo of great Florin Zamfirescu- sorry for initial miss.
