Synopsis

It’s the middle of a film shoot and Paul, the director, is having an affair with Alina, an actress playing a supporting role. With Alina’s last day on set imminent, Paul decides to rewrite the script in order to shoot a nude scene with her. But tomorrow is always another day…

Our take

Romanian New Wave director Corneliu Porumboiu turns his hilarious deadpan style to a behind-the-scenes look at moviemaking in Bucharest. This duet (or is it a duel?) between a director and actress is a clever self-critique about what matters in cinema, as well as a withering satire of masculine ego.
