A Mere Breath

Doar o rasuflare

Romania, 2016
  • Romanian
  • English


The film explores the deeply contradictory nature of love in the family life. Dobrin is waiting for a miracle to happen for Denisa, his younger daughter, to get up from the wheelchair and walk.

Our take

This doc is a delicately shaped slice of life and its many hardships in a declining working class town in rural Romania. Monica Lazurean-Gorgan’s second film is an intimate family portrait with eloquent observations on the nature of family, the challenges of disability, and the guidance of faith.
