Movie of the Month 2



I am still amazed that it took me so long to actually see this movie, taking into account the fact that I've seen "Cum mi-am petrecut sfarsitul lumii" and I really think Dorotheea Petre is such a promising actress... But, here I am, years apart from its debut, realizing Romanian directors can make movies that matter.

RYNA is a movie about a 16 year old girl from a rural area around Tulcea. Nothing strange about it, except that she lives with an oppressing, misogynist father and too weak a mother. Ryna Biris longs to wear dresses and go dancing, she longs to be kissed and be taken care of, instead of always taking care of her drunken father.
How the story unfolds next? Well, there's a French guy who seems to like her, there's a mayor quite typical of these days, and a grandpa who sees things as they are.
