a father. and his son.
6 March 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

One of great short films of the last decades. for its message, for cinematography, for the inspired way to explore, using simple aspects, the Romanian rural realities. a father and his son. the way to the city. a TV . and the dialogue as part of silence. adaptation of a short story, it is a film of details. out of any demonstration. like portrait of a world. like exploration of a relation in which the trust is mixed with the gray perspective about near reality. short, an admirable work.
