A nurse and her boyfriend, a doctor, take in a wounded young man that knocks on their door. He was injured during protests against the communist regime. They take care of him and take him to the hospital where they work. The next morning, the nurse finds him in the morgue, shot in the head. Both of them are pressured by agents of the communist secret police (Securitate) to forget everything. While the doctor gives in, the nurse refuses even though she is being threatened, framed, imprisoned, beaten, tortured and raped.Written by
A film about truth. Cold, bitter, cruel, precise. The Romanian Revolution of 1989 as scene for a drama mixing lives and choices and attittudes. Admirable performance of Oana Pellea. A film of angry and hope. About a phsycian and her experiences for not ignore the truth. About changing of a world and about love as way of survive in a blank world of appearences. As Romanian, I saw this film as one of moments of the birth of new hope. Like the last scene. So, a real useful film about truth. In its profound sense.
