„Interior. Block of Flats Hallway” focuses on few urban postcommunist human typologies of an extreme cynicism. Similarly to other Romanian short films about the dry existence of certain characters from the urban day to day life, this one too gives shape to an episode about empathy or rather the lack of it.

After a well structured script in which the dialogues refine each character, „Interior. Block of Flats Hallway” is among those Romanian short films online not to be missed on Cinepub.ro.

Lines:

“But he’s been dead for some time. Maybe he managed without a candle.”
