After being the sole unfortunate witness of a domestic quarrel that ends up in a murder, Patrascu finds himself at odds with two very close neighbors: one is the bizarre murderer, the other one his very own conscience.
It is the story of Mugur Calinescu, a Romanian teenager who wrote graffiti messages of protest against the regime of dictator Nicolae Ceausescu and was subsequently apprehended, interrogated, and ultimately crushed by the secret police.
A young man trying to solve the puzzle of his father's last moments rattles the life of a quiet town and unburies unwanted truths. His compulsive quest becomes a downward spiral of love, lust and lies.
During the production of his latest movie, a director feels the need to add a new scene, emphasising on the protagonist's aesthetic nudity. Endless negotiations begin between lunch and dinner; however, will they ever reach a conclusion?
Love 2. America tells the story of the final 24 hours of the romance of two lovers, ANTON (30) and BEATRICE(34). After 24 hours, Anton is going to leave, forever, to a place far away where he will start a new life; Beatrice will return to David(32), her husband. Entwined with memories, dreams and thoughts of the future, their story slowly departs from reality and becomes the universal story of two lovers at the end of their love.
I saw this in the cinema after a friend warmly recommended it. And it was a blast. I've seen good Romanian movies, but I had never seen a beautiful Romanian movie. Every shot is like a painting. And the whole movie is very strong. It is not recommended for those seeking regular Romanian movies with social issues on display, gypsies, and drug-addicts. This is a beautiful love story for mature audiences.
