Three films based on Three Conversations by Russian writer and philosopher Vladimir Solovyov.The actors' 'exercises' develop into a minimalistic trilogy on cinema and literature, social and spiritual life, acting in film and in real life.
Two siblings and an illegitimate love. A father who's a doctor and several accusations. A family in which no one ever drew a line between what's moral and what's legal. Not even when it comes to abortion.
Three days after the terrorist attack on the offices of Parisian weekly Charlie Hebdo and forty days after the death of his father, Lary, a doctor in his forties is about to spend the Saturday at a family gathering to commemorate the deceased. But the occasion does not go according to expectations. Forced to confront his fears and his past, to rethink the place he holds within the family, Lary finds himself constraint to tell his version of the truth.Written by

a chain of vapid banalities and too underlined common aspects of everyday post- communism Romanian life thrown in in order to give some kind of authenticity. It lacks editing, character building, a interesting story to the script and a filming approach that goes with the message it tries to send (if any). Although I'm a big fan of Romanian cinematography which is frequently surprising, I had to force myself through the first painful long hour and after I gave up. I found neither humour, drama or emotions. Disappointing.
