Când se lasă seara peste Bucureşti sau metabolism

When Evening Falls on Bucharest or Metabolism
Corneliu Porumboiu
RO, FRA 2013
89 min

Paul has two weeks left of shooting his latest film – and pursuing a romance with his actress and muse, Alina. Faking an ulcer in order to delay the production, Paul spends his downtime with Alina going to restaurants, discussing and deconstructing banal topics. The quasi-absurdity of their analytical relationship moves from the dining room to his apartment, where they exhaustively rehearse her final scene in an attempt to draw out its dramatic authenticity. Through these moments, Porumboiu sharpens his skill for elevating the mundane to the metaphysical. dense with meaning in every frame, WHEN EVENING FAllS ON BUCHAREST OR METABOLISM delivers a thought-provoking rumination on our engagement with reality through cinema. (Dimitri Eipides)
