Storyline

Musician Gabriel and dimpled dry-cleaning proprietress Gabriela live like two strangers who no longer see each other. But in humorous contrast to their staid, passionless lives, characters in a constant state of sexual arousal surround them. Their libidinous teen son, whose hilarious voiceover commentary intermittently provides important narrative information, prides himself on being the high school stud and aspires to a career in porn. Gabriela's sexy employee switches boyfriends the way she changes clothes. And despite being married, Gabriel's colleague is working his way through the female members of their orchestra. Ultimately, the two Gabys find their virtual affairs reconnect them with their own desires, but in a way less movie-fantasy and more satisfyingly real-life. Written by Palm Springs Internation Film Festival

Interesting Comedy-Drama
8 December 2012 | by billcr12See all my reviews

Gabriel and Gabriela are a 40ish couple with a seventeen year old son, living a mundane and passionless existence, in modern day Romania. They coexist, each just going through the motions of a marriage with no meaning left in it. One night, without knowing it, each of them wind up in the same chat room on the internet, conversing with a supposed stranger. Day after day, the two grow more and more comfortable in the anonymity of cyberspace, and believe that they are falling in love with each other. Gabriela goes to work as a dry cleaner and Gabriel is a page turner for an orchestra. Meanwhile, their son, Vladimir narrates the story, which includes his frequent and funny sexual escapades with fellow young and willing classmates. He reminded me of Dustin Hoffman's Benjamin in "The Graduate." The three leads of this nuclear family are excellent; they seem to be a real family struggling to get by each day, and in the end I wished for a happy ending. A very impressive comedy-drama.
