Two siblings and an illegitimate love. A father who's a doctor and several accusations. A family in which no one ever drew a line between what's moral and what's legal. Not even when it comes to abortion.
Alex, in his mid-thirties, is a quite neurotic character. When his mother is hospitalized with a stroke, the caring son's life gets out of track. At the hospital he finds himself in a burlesque kind of human zoo full of unexpected characters and surprising events. Trying to manage the situation in between everybody's advice, he's coming hypochondriac. While his mother seems to feel perfectly fine Alex is making his own set of mistakes - throughout with best intentions.Written by
a not new theme - "Moartea domnului Lăzărescu" remains the cinematographic cliff about Romanian hospitals. but a great work. not surprising. Adrian Sitaru is one of interesting voices from the New Romanian Cinema Wave. Bogdan Dumitrache is the perfect choice for the role of angry son front to his mother sickness. Natașa Raab and Marian Rîlea, as the parents, are great. and the mixture of eccentric characters, hospital air, ordinary details from the Romanian specific to understand the life is perfect. it is a film about a state, a form of love , using so useful absurd who defines the society. the tension works and the cinematography does the precise dose of realism. so, a son and his mother. in the womb of a hospital. that could be all.
