i just loved the way Anna/Violeta laughed. Probably one of the best laughs I can recall in Film. The Film is frenetically POV handheld which may be very challenging at times and works much better in BEST INTENTIONS, another feature film by Adrian Sitaru. Yes, Knife in the Water, with a Camera trying to underline the conflicts.
