Hawaii is a story on the struggle of inheriting $3 million in communist-era Romania when owning $1 could mean losing your freedom and touches on the theme of how money could buy if not happiness, at least the freedom to choose unhappiness.
A beautiful night. Silence. The sky is full of stars. Outside the weather is warm, pleasant, relaxing. After a day's work, two friends sit on the balcony and smoke a joint. They are enjoying themselves. They pass the cigarette around, give each other friendly burns and sometimes flatter the other one with names like "dumbass" - but between them there is peace and trust, as it should be after twenty-five years lived side by side. They are fond of each other. They have a history together. Neither one is afraid of disappointing surprises from the other one. And yet, Tom (the host) is skilled at disguisedly pouring, drop by drop, subtext after subtext. In a Machiavellian fashion, Tom has prepared for that night some sort of a truth-hoax.
I've seen the movie in Tel Aviv, within the Romanian festival running in Israel
The theme, the play particularly Vlad Zamfirescu's, is of inspiring quality and strength!
It's amazing how with such limited set up, one terrace, limited cast, a tense thriller is created, beautiful developed through a well constructed crescendo, culminating with with an open and surprising finale!
Like a good wine it leaves you with a long and enchanting after taste
Continue with the good job
