With a narrative composition following the rules of the absurd, shot in black-and-white on a dream-like, surrealist background, „Irreversible” tells the story of a character whose self is rambling in confusion. Following a violent event (probably a car crash) there occurs an irreversible change not only in the body, but also in the soul, the self or, maybe, the consciousness of the protagonist. What the film shows is maybe a runaway, a reunion, an abandonment or a judgment of the character’s own consciousness.

This film is one of those Romanian short films that represent an inspired choice for the experimental genre fans.
