Storyline

Mihai is a maths teacher from Bucharest, unhappy about the compromises that his school headmistress asks him to make. The story starts on a weekend day when Mihai and his lover, SWEETIE, go out for a picnic just to relax a bit after a very stressful week. But the day takes a different course when Sweetie runs their car over a prostitute, on a side road outside Bucharest. The two lovers fight, as Sweetie wants to cover up the accident, while Mihai, a moralist, can't accept that. Sweetie's aggressiveness wins over meek Mihai, and so they decide to hide the woman's corpse in the forest. The prostitute, however, turns out to be not that badly hurt and recovers. The two dodge, pretending they had found her hurt, and Ana, the hooker, invites herself to the picnic. Ana gradually gets into the couple's life, aggressing Sweetie, warming up to Mihai and being indifferent when they are all together. While meaning well, she lies and manipulates them - but then anyone can see that Ana, even if not... Written by anonymous

This is what it's all about!
26 January 2009 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I was surprised to see such a good Romanian movie again. Some people might say they are fed-up with mundane personages and prostitutes and adultery, but let me tell you, this is real life - or as Ioana Flora keeps saying in the movie: "This is what it's all about" ("Despre asta-i vorba"), and if many old-timers have no skill do depict them in style, Adrian Sitaru can really do it! His conception is elegant and delicate, and also powerful and cruel, even ruthless - after all, this is what it's all about... Splendid characters, all three of them! Adrian Titieni makes a very realistic maths teacher who is very human and has his own problems, Ioana Flora is so natural and dramatic, in her embittered and stuffy "Iubi", while Maria Dinulescu simply rocks! What a monument of sweetness and poison, my friends - and, all in all, SO REALISTIC! Now this is what it's all about!
