Musician Gabriel and dimpled dry-cleaning proprietress Gabriela live like two strangers who no longer see each other. But in humorous contrast to their staid, passionless lives, characters in a constant state of sexual arousal surround them. Their libidinous teen son, whose hilarious voiceover commentary intermittently provides important narrative information, prides himself on being the high school stud and aspires to a career in porn. Gabriela's sexy employee switches boyfriends the way she changes clothes. And despite being married, Gabriel's colleague is working his way through the female members of their orchestra. Ultimately, the two Gabys find their virtual affairs reconnect them with their own desires, but in a way less movie-fantasy and more satisfyingly real-life. Written by

"Buna! Ce faci?" is an honest and jolly film, slightly tendered with melancholy. It treats the theme of love reflected in the life of a long- married couple that has a rebellious teenager son.
I also salute the poster of the film, with its vintage-design and its capacity to slightly introduce the viewer to a world of love, indifference and self- finding, regardless the age, ideas that reflect themselves in a well-handled and well written script. Thumbs up to the casting and settings, as well.
All in all, I recommend this film and I wish we (the Romanians) produce more and more such romantic comedies.
