SENTIMENTAL STORIES

Xandra Popescu 2023 16m

Available in Italy only

Synopsis

An almost deserted diner in the middle of the port. The owner, Violeta, dreams of a life that could have been different. She employs her niece, Maria, a radical passivist who steers away from any drive or ambition. Between chores and cigarette breaks, they talk about the future. As the day goes by, they witness one love story dying out while another is trying to be born.

Director’s statement

Sentimental Stories came out of a desire for dissidence. It wanted to resist triumphant affects and the acceleration of our time. The port itself was to play a character, strangely deserted, a place of work where no one can be seen working. I hoped that for a few minutes, I could make time stand still, without a fear of missing out.
