Universal picture of an isolated land
zenide andrei cristian | 11/29/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A mesmerising lead performance and gorgeously effective cinematography makes this an excellent debut by Romanian filmmaker Ruxandra Zenide. Treated like a boy by her often drunk father who wishes she was one, Ryna is a top mechanic, helping him in the trade in their small village on the Danube Delta. Despite her baggy overalls and cropped hair, Ryna's feminine beauty doesn't go unnoticed - the postman, a French anthropologist and the corrupt mayor are all admirers - but when she disobeys her father and goes to the fair in a dress, Ryna pays a heavy and terrible price for pursuing her identity."
