OUT OF COMPETITION:
A bizarre, towards the end very dark tragic comedy about the disintegration
of values in a Bucharest family. The protagonists are introduced at the
funeral of Niki’s beloved son Mihai: Niki, an old retired colonel,
his sickly wife Poucha, his lively daughter Angela and her newly-wed husband
Eugen, as well as Eugen’s parents Florian (Flo) and Doina, two modern
people in their mid-forties. While Niki is rooted in traditional values
– he likes to wear his uniform for family-gatherings, is still called
“Colonel” by his neighbours and lives in a small apartment
full of memorabilia –, Flo is a full-fledged vegetarian, smartly
dressed and interested in “modern” theories that are really
rooted in the 70s. He has a computer, a refrigerator filled with delicacies
and a Renault he lovingly services.
