Synopsis

Lary and his wife go to his mother's house to attend a traditional memorial service for his father, who died 40 days earlier. Before the arrival of the priest, brothers, sisters and cousins exchange news and discuss a variety of topics, before the traditional meal arrives. Internal divisions and family secrets begin to emerge beneath the surface. One cousin, Puiu, is obsessed with 9/11 conspiracy theories. An aunt who was a former party member under the Ceaucescu regime, is cringing about some of the guests present. The arrival of the priest and his clerics rings a truce. But not for long. The meal will have to wait.

  • 5 stars "real life ..."
  • 1 star "My worst movie ever. Boring, long, painful. A very clostrophobic experience. This thing which is film with a hand held 'unstable' camera last almost 3 hours. It is filmed in only 3 locations : an appartement, a SUV and the street. I almost took the day off the following day to recover from it."
  • 1 star "i must say that this film has too much dialogue no real story to tell. The characters ramble on and on and there are countless issues and current world problems brought up again and again. This film is too long lacks direction and needed editing."
