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 "a film that creeps into you and stays there"
  • 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."
