Reality is the best fiction
22 November 2018 | by Mun7eanuSee all my reviews

Two hours and a half passed very quickly. This if you don't follow the action, but the changes in characters mind. Maybe the most powerful Romanian film made after "After hills". There is a resemblance with Zvyagintsev "Loveless" but goes dipper. Untill the mind blowing final scene, the film is very quiet, despite the tragic situation. In thos quite there is an inner scream that the main character exposes extraordinary. If you want to see the decomposition of a man through pain, watch it.
