Storyline

16 year old Ryna is the daughter of a poor Romanian who runs a gas station in a small community in the Danube delta. Ryna has been brought up like a boy because her father had longed for a son. The film is about strong family ties, about gender identity, and about a despotic father slowly losing his grip. But, it is also about poverty, social suppression and the abuse of power. Ryna shows the awakening of a young girl's soul and the pain that goes with it. Caught between traditional values and materialistic dreams, in the end Ryna pays a heavy price in order to assert her own identity. Written by Elena Hazanov

Everything it what it seems
27 July 2005 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

This movie transports us in the Delta of the Danube, within a small town located in Romania, where the river meets the sea. The Delta can be seen as a beginning as well as the end. As the end: Ryna is a teenager living in a small and poor town of the Danube's border - almost an island - where everybody hopes to reach the wealth of the "material" world which is getting everyday closer, without any real chance to get to it. As a beginning: the Delta has always been like that. Nothing can change it, except it's own cycles. When the storm arrives, the roots are coming back to life, ready to support a new beginning. Ryna has to find her own way, like many of the teenagers facing the brutal changes in some eastern countries. But more than the social background, the movie is focusing on Ryna's character, showing us this contrasted world through her teenager's eyes.
