a wedding in Basarabia. a young couple and a web of traditions, past shadows, traumas. and the humor as unique form to say a story of this borders. so, it is not a great movie. only reflection of deep roots and images about the other. and it is not easy for a not Romanian/Basarabian public to understand many of its references or nuances. a cause - the role of exercise to present sides of a reality by director, not perfect but full of good intentions and useful for remember old differences. Victoria Bobu and Vlad Logigan make decent roles but out of the slices of mentality projections, it seems be a film about nothing. so, less than a construction, the film is , rather, a step. interesting, beautiful and good start for new projects about borders between two similar - different cultures .
