End of paternal myth
3 May 2007 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

A story about duty and freedom nuances. About social walls and mixture between past and present. About the other as projection of your desire.About silence and strange skin of words, about images and discoveries, about measure of understanding and price of frustration.

Fight between generations, a father dependent of past's believes, his disciples, an teenager son for who the truth is essence of decent existence and its value is only way to be himself.

A dark film about gestures and secrets, about ethical symbols and cold relations, about sacrifice and innocence, about impossibility of confession and different worlds.

A film of suggestion and subtle beauty. Exploration of a crisis in shadow of social reality. End of paternal myth and travel inside good and bad.
