Old Women Discussing Theological Issues
22 March 2007 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I saw this at an obscure film festival in Bucharest. For some yet obscure reasons, I went to see it twice, even though there weren't more than 4 or 5 people inside the theatre. Strangely enough, I thought it was a fiction film - that's how it was advertised, anyway - but as I kept watching it, I couldn't help noticing how realistic the characters' "acting" was. Camera work - hand-held most of the times - was also nice - with an eye very keen on details (and seldom if ever could you say it was video), those details that fill and empty an existence. There were two or there shots that stayed with me: the rat dead in the trap, the toy horse or the old ladies discussing over the table such issues as the holy trinity and the holy ghost, whilst still indulging in tabloid fodder. I don't know what to say: for a documentary, it looks too 'directed/orchestrated', for a fiction film, it looks too improvisational, too documentary-like. All in all, moody and sort of touching, yet carefully avoiding melodrama.

My vote: 7/10
