Drama
Fathers-in-law of a young couple trying to conceive their first child, Niki and Flo couldn't be more different. Niki (Victor Rebengiuc) is a retired army colonel proud of his career; Flo (Razvan Vasilescu) is a vegetarian anarchist, vehemently critical of church, state, and all other institutions. The two are brought together by the funeral of Niki's other son, who was electrocuted in a freak accident. Director Lucian Pintilie adroitly and gradually exposes the ostensibly free-spirited Flo as a domineering fascist who continually denigrates the unassuming old soldier. Unfortunately, a violent conclusion upsets the balance of what comes before. In Romanian with subtitles.
