Synopsis

In August 1983, architect Dinu Neagu together with his wife and two children, a boy and a girl, are on a beach of nudists near an industrial area. Two security guards descend from a car and take him to Bucharest for a statement about which they do not give much details about.

The film continues in the militia’s arrest, where architect Neagu is locked in the same room as Vali, a common law convict, used as a torturer by security in exchange for favours. Things are getting more and more absurd from one day to the next.

Reviews

,,Relația de victimă-călău pe care cei doi actori o construiesc este impresionantă și nu bănuiești că Papadopol și Postelnicu sunt, de fapt, prieteni și scriu scenarii de comedie împreună.‘‘
