A big improvement of a talented director
11 November 2011 | by (Bucharest,Romania) – See all my reviews

I've just seen this movie at the cinema today an unfortunately there were just 4 persons in the whole projection room because this movie has to be seen by more people. It is not a perfect movie,but nonetheless it has its good parts,especially in recreating the feeling that you get in a hospital ward(in Romania).Bogdan Dumitrache,who won the Best Acotr prize at the Locarno film festival portraits very convincing a man in his 30s who,from being a normal guy "minding his own business" becomes a neurotic annoying son of a sick mother who questions everything and everyone. The shots are also filmed very interesting,mainly in POV or in some kind of a reverse-POV(the POV switches to the person he is speaking with).This creates a rather unique perspective on the actions taking place. Also there is a surreal element in the film,a man masked in a bunny,as seen in the main cover picture of the movie,which is vaguely presented and remains a enigma throughout the film. Overall compared to his previous film "Hooked"(Pescuit sportiv) which is a really disappointing movie based on an interesting idea,but with a horrible editing and amateur camera-work,Best intentions is an interesting movie that should be seen by European film lovers or more specifically Romanian New Wave film lovers,resembling much Cristi Puiu's more acclaimed film "Moartea domnului Lazarescu"
