Is there really no third option for the characters in this short film of the great R omanian director Lucian Pintilie? A short film with many complex ramifications about history, honor, about how material value translates in life and survival.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
My Lucian Pintilie marathon has finally done with this short but interestingly chaotic/historic black comedy. ANNNNND, if you can understand Japanese, my Pintilie's complete retrospective is here BOOM!→ http://d.hatena.ne.jp/razzmatazzrazzledazzle/20170321/1490093409 // http://d.hatena.ne.jp/razzmatazzrazzledazzle/20170325/1490451482 // http://d.hatena.ne.jp/razzmatazzrazzledazzle/20170325/1490452988 // [cont.]
Don't rightly know how to rate this. If this 40-minute whatsit turns out to be Pintilie's last film - and it looks that way - then he ended his career in, if not grand, at least adamantly Pintilian fashion.
