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.
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

As said already, annoyingly pretentious and 2 hours too long. Not even close to recent works of Cristi Puiu. Movie will fit hipsters and those who like pretend to be smarter then others. From almost 3h movie filmed in small space i would expect much better atmosphere that would suck up you into screen. Characters undefined, which should be stronger part as movie is that long. Some of characters (drunk student) introduced without any need but probably had to cause of cooproduction with other countries. Very weak.
Only good thing is great acting of some of the actors, but even that cannot hide pathetic tries of Puiu to be "different".
