In 1980s Romania, Dallas (1978) becomes a huge hit and inspires a young woman to emigrate to America. Playfully mixing fiction and documentary, "Hotel Dallas" is a surreal parable of communism, capitalism, and the power of art.

A young couple settles down in a large abandoned industrial warehouse. An orange strip, glued to the floor, partitions the area in two equal portions: to the right, his sculpture atelier; to the left, her dance studio. Pendular takes place in this setting, where art, performances and intimacy mingle together; and where the characters slowly lose their capacity of distinguishing between their artistic projects, their past and their romantic relationship.
A detail of the dancer' s bare feet on a step represents a woman that lives with her husband in metaphysical dimension, a step away from the reality.
Tha dancer searches the contact of the hands and the bare feet with the floor , sometimes with an other partner.
Her husband is a sculptor that he is too coherent altough he refuses the coherency. The woman asks to her husband:" Where does the cable lead?".
The art should have a direction, a destination that isn' t the answere"Nowhere".
The rhytm of the movie is slow, creating a reality of a metaphysical dimension of the life. The "Factory" recalls the Factory of Andy Warhol, that was more
productive and economically active. It was closer to a concrete reality.
