Ivana Mladenovis fiction debut is Romanian social realism with an ethnographic edge, but its also a romance between two ostensibly heterosexual men achieving an unexpected bond. Screen Daily
An unexpected romance blossoms between two men amid a ramshackle Bucharest neighborhood in this tender, offbeat love story. When Adi, an anthropologist researching regional pop music, meets Alberto, a burly Roma ex-con, the two lonely souls enter into a relationship that tests the societal and moral taboos of their community.
Documentarian Ivana Mladenovi brings a wonderfully loose-limbed, vérité naturalism to her auspicious narrative debut, based on the eponymous book written by Adrian Schiop who plays himself in the movie.
