winter sleep of our conscience, the Romanian way
12 October 2016 | by oanafriguraSee all my reviews

I love this movie completely! I went to see it in a Friday evening, 9 PM, but it won my full attention from the first line! I have enjoyed every single second of its 3 hours although I was tired and it changed my spirit, made me laugh, made me think, made me happy. It is a movie created from our very essence as a nation, from our each and every archetype, from our collective or individual beliefs, but with a director touch of genius that makes the movie to be an incredible story and an amazing movie experience. It is, for sure a state of mind movie, but, at the same time, I believe it's one movie that builds its own state into your mind. The thing I loved the most about the movie is the dynamics of the characters, each being its own archetype and what happens between them is completely delusional (in its best sense). The choice of the actors - truly inspired, every one fits its character best and it feels like you are really in that apartment with them as the synergy created is so well built. Highly recommend it! Congrats to our talented directors, for such an incredible year for the Romanian movie scene!
