7 July 2004 | by (romania) – See all my reviews

I've been waiting for quite long for this to happen. not a let-me-show-u-how-postrevolutionary-poor-and-comicotragical-romanian-people-struggle-through-life (the "you cant understand it unless you're one of us" feature is a bonus) script. not an embarrassing to watch Hollywood-look-alike attempt either. but then again who knows what wouldve come out of it supposing it was a 100min film... however it struck me by being quite well-handled in points of acting and photography. the insight we get on the character is apparently pure epidermic ordinary details :the traffic is heavy so he gets stuck, misses a business appointment, has to deal by handsfree with his small daughter's having swallowed a hair accessoire, he meets a student selling sodas and cokes on the street to the thirsty-stuck-in-their-cars-and-probably-neglecting-their-family businessmen, he buys her a coffee and before they split up he asks her to take a picture of him making funny faces and he sends it via cellphone to his daughter. hm hm so what's all the fuss about it and how the hell did it get the palme d'or for shorts? i wonder about the latter myself too, but hey, don't expect prizes in film festivals to be won only by masterpieces. still i cant but admire the know-how of the director when it comes to deal with his characters, ergo they do tell a story, even if the short seems to offer a crumb of a narrative. its poignant its delicate and human, quite a breath of fresh air though a bit clumsily constructed from a conceptual point of view. quite urban for my taste
