A strange album
15 September 2011 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

A film about circus world. About the nuances of a Moldavian city. About sacrifices, lights, show and the flavors of past. A polar bear. And a family. In the circle of a gray, strange act. It is a sensitive definition of past and small values. About courage and daily fights. And the cast is collection of great actors. Gina Patrichi as lost-ed mother, Carmen Galin in the role of axis , bridge, hart and voice, Octavian Cotescu as actor, in basic form. And Iași. As the skin of feelings and pains.It is a page of my childhood. So, the words are only drops of ink. Pieces of a chimeric time machine. In the Comunist period, a movie like this was a kind of window. Today, a strange album with the as photos.
