Dumitru is a two-faceted killer: he kills animals and called a hunter, and kills people, and branded as an assassin. Dumitru is just out of prison, for the first time since the fall of communism. Even on the train taking him home, he is planning to return to his past practices as he is involved in a blood thirsty card game with some gypsies. The game turns out badly, and one of those making up the table is killed. He starts on a flight again, this time, bound for his home town, where he finds his wife pregnant by his own brother. Blind with a thirst for vengeance, Dumitru commits one more murder that unleashes a sequence of new crimes and makes him into a wanted serial killer. Life becomes a burden that is too heavy for Dumitru who decides to abbreviate his existence. However, he soon discovers he does not hold all power over himself. God has other plans for him and condemns to him to stay alive. Written by
What starts as the crude reality of an ex-murder convict, is transformed in a powerful reality where you can feel real but the world around you changes irreversibly.
Is one of those movies where the reality is altered as the time goes by, but this one has one specific reality moment where the viewer feels that it has been caught in the action although it has read this comment >:).
It can be considered one of "those European movies" it connects Russian and Serbian "life with brutality" with Scandinavian "thinking about it" in a truly Romanian background to offer a good European painting of a harsh God.
