dark actions in broad sunlight
14 February 2008 | by friedtSee all my reviews

Adrian Sitaru's Waves is a tidy, succinct film shot in bright sunshine but filled with the dark side of everyday life. We are on a beach packed with vacationers. The comfortable Romanian family sneers at the frolicking May-December couple on the blanket next to them. The gypsy boy (for Romanians and Hungarians he is the underclass, the person you avoid by crossing the street) approaches, on the make, settles suspiciously close to the young and beautiful mother and her child. Then the mother takes the inner tube and asks the boy to watch her child while she goes swimming. Reminiscent of the best of David Lynch, Sitaru presents the dark side indirectly, without exclamations, in the brightest of light. In this moral tale about responsibility, he shocks us into realigning our definitions and expectations.
