For this being a new Romanian film, I can understand the explicit nudity, but I think the nudity, for a shocking opening scene to lure the viewer in is old stuff. The viewer is forced to watch a couple engage in playfulness in full nudity while on a bed. The scene goes on more than 10 minutes; then, we cut to the family middle aged Paul shares a home with Adriana and their 9 year-old daughter.
Paul is having a sexual affair with the female dentist of his daughter; this affair is passionate and we follow Paul struggling with his love for someone other than his wife.
There isn't a lot goin' on here, it lacks any soundtrack, lacks varying stages of emotion by Paul, he just waits for the time to make his secret known to his wife. There are not a lot of characters, and mostly, the viewer is just observing wondering and waiting for each step. However, as I said, not much happens; nothing memorable, not much in defining moments. The film drags considerably as we wait for something!
Aside from the lack of any moving or memorable scenes, the subtitles move quickly and oftentimes, there is a lot of printed dialogue that moves too quick!
I was not impressed about this slow, quiet film.......Rizzo
