Trivia

Radu Jude despre film:
“[French director Jacques]Rivette writes somewhere: ‘Cinema is, fundamentally, a descriptive and didactic art: the two are linked. Its true vocation is the essay: Descriptive ordering of reality, the revealing of the relationships, connections and concordances of various phenomena.’ This is what I tried, with my modest talent, to do in this film. I wanted to connect different stories (about exploitation, death and images), different genres (a road-movie, comedy, montage film, documentary), various types of humor and various aesthetic strategies, which I hope the audience will discover with delight.”
