The story is set in 1968, when a Romanian-German family from the city of Arad starts a journey to the German Democratic Republic, where the older son, Mihai, hopes that surgical intervention for his ailing father will restore the family's harmony. Accompanied by Emil, the younger brother, they will be caught in the aftermath of the Prague Spring, which will alter their plans.Written by
I'm a romanian born during the communist era, this film's action is placed around the years I came to the world. So I've watched this film primarily for understanding my parent's life. Well, not only I know a bit more, but I've discovered a touching and very deeply sensitive author and film director. There are moments in the film I couldn't help it and had tears in the eyes. Then other moments where deep human relationships gave me hope. And she's already understanding the problems idealists can create. She has it all, as far as I can say.
