International Competition

A Month in Thailand / Paul Negoescu

A young couple, Radu and Adina, are getting ready for the New Year’s Eve festivities. It is obvious that she is very much in love, while he is unsure of their relationship and his commitment to it. Radu breaks up with her during the night’s celebrations and goes from party to party looking for his ex-girlfriend, Nadia. He is convinced she was the only one who made him happy. Both the film’s narrative and its emotional exposition are honest and straightforward; but most fascinating is its social milieu, rarely explored in Romanian films. Radu belongs to a young generation coming from a comfortable middle class: his friends use American pop culture references, talk about astrology and other light fare, and go clubbing in nightclubs that could be anywhere in Europe. These people are not entirely without charisma, but they also seem relatively disaffected. Radu himself is not just unsure about women; he is unsure about his desires and life in general.
