Synopsis: Two friends who grew up in a Romanian orphanage are reunited. Voichita has sought refuge in a monastery but Alina wants her to come and live with her in Germany where she can get them work.
Stan's thoughts: This has the all characteristic subtlety of a low budget, foreign film you'd expect. Much is hinted at but little is actually stated and that is both a good and bad thing. Good because it makes for an uncomfortable watch - leaving much to your own surmising can be far more effective than having plot points and back story spelt out. I also enjoy seeing films where most of the performance is given without words.
My problem is that I don't think it sustained a film that is two and a half hours long and I got a little impatient with it after a while.
