The hero is a retired army officer in the period of transition in Romania from the Communist rule to democracy. As many aged people during these times he loses a lot in position and material situation and is too aged to adapt and start building something from zero. His last resort is the family, but his home and family is also slowly decomposing under the pressure of the times. His elder son dies in a stupid home accident (the film starts with his funeral), than his only other child, a daughter moves to America in the search of a better material life. His life seems to fall under the control of his in-law, a mercantile and much better adapted man, who slowly seems to deprive him not only of his children, but also of his pride and human dignity. The violent end is unexpected, although typical for the Pintilie's movies, but if you look back and reflect on what you've seen on screen, everything before was a logical building of the end.

Niki et Flo is the best movie i'd seen in Romania.All day and all night i recommend this movie to all of my friends.From Lucian Pintilie this was the first movie.Seconded by Terminus Paradis,Dupa Amiaza Unui Tortionar.Great movies,great director.I love him.When I was young I saw Too Late and i was shocked by the way that L. Pintilie is filming the scenes.Niki et Flo is a great movie about the Romanian's's life in Bucharest.The classical Romanian's's life.Flo is very very funny.In every movie that Pintilie was the director,R. Vasilescu was very funny.Again D. Chiriac.Great actress.Coca Bloos to.I saw this movie for about 16 times.I really want to see him again.I discover new things.
