„10″ is the debut short film of the actor Dorian Boguţă, the first of a series of short films he made during his career as a director.

Dialogues are essential in a context like this: a couple, a secret relationship and a turning point, and Dorian Boguță, who also wrote the film’s screenplay, created realistic and full of subtext lines, which are sometimes serious or ironic, sometimes funny. „You can’t force someone to love you” is the line of the main character, which seems to become a motto for the film.

Serious, but in the same time funny and relaxed, „10″ shows in 20 minutes the many faces of a relationship: from anger to harsh ironies, from closeness to the absurd of reality, from the possibility of a break-up… to a dance on the roof of a block of flats.

„10″ is part of the Romanian short films online collection of Cinepub where the couple theme is showed in various and complex manners.
