Filmmaking within film. Filmmaker within film. The subject is the tool of deception, that is, the camera, as well as the camera man himself--film itself-- and in a roundabout irony, the subject here (the man) is subject to deception itself, as metaphor for a much deeper deception, that of a nation. In other words, no matter how deep your feelings run to catch up with reality, nobody is to be trusted. Brilliant.
One of the best Romanian films from the so-called communist era. A love (triangle) story (of sorts) with a TV cameraman, which, through both its narrative and extremely unaffected style, reveals the falsifications and abuses behind the 'official' version of reality.
