Official competition, Sarajevo IFF, 2018
Directed by: Florin ȘERBAN
Length: 102 min.
Somewhere up in the mountains of Romania, Simon, a woodsman, lives in almost complete isolation, until one day he finds a woman in the forest, beaten and almost unconscious. He brings her back to his cabin, feeds her, clothes her, bandages her wounds, protects her. And before he can realise what is happening, before he can defend himself or flee, he is caught up in a game from there is no way out: he falls in love. And then he locks the woman up, ostensibly so that she will recover. When she tries to escape, he brings her back. And when his actions are too transparent and fail, he explodes in an outburst of fury and runs away. An outsider intrudes, bringing reality into the game and thus ruining it.
