Storyline

Rafael and Cristina are two people that were never supposed to meet. He is 19, gypsy, works in a car-wash and wants to make it big as a boxer; he lives with his grandfather and is about to have a breakthrough as an athlete. She is 34, Hungarian, actress in the local theatre, married, and goes through a professional and personal crisis; her husband is the star of the theatre ensemble and it seems that she has been living in his shadow for a while. Without knowing each other, Rafael follows Cristina everyday on the cobblestone streets of an old provincial town. She knows it and enjoys the attention. One time, she turns back and they face each other. The following day he looks her in the eyes and asks: "If you hadn't been married, would you have married me?". From that moment on there is no way back for neither of them. Two different destinies, two different worlds facing different dilemmas. Despite their ages, Rafael and Cristina share the same need to prove themselves. In their own way...

not bad
7 October 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

I know, the expectation was high about this film. Not great but profound honest , about a Romania so familiar to its people. A boy. A woman. A meet on street. Box. Theater. A grandpa and a family. And something who must be defined as fall. In essence, only brutal return from dream to womb of reality. A question - film. Decent performances, decent story and, maybe, the status of not another "Eu cand vreau sa fluier, fluier". But, nice job, interesting work.
