from new wave circle
29 October 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

film of new Romanian wave, it explores a common situation levels. and, without be a revelation, can be considered a good film. a son and his neurotic reaction for his mother health. Bogdan Dumitrache is best choice for Alex role and Natașa Raab is a convincing mother. Adrian Sitaru gives a good story and a decent use of actors but not always coherent. the rabbit mask, few strange scenes makes the movie little bizarre. but this is not a big problem. the film is correct, almost touching, so, a part of a chain who reminds another films of new generations of Romanian directors, not only as themes but like key of image about reality between documentary and testimony, between chronicle and self definition, search of perfect voice as film makers.
