Toma and Ana meet during their philosphy studies. Ana suffers from anxiety attacks and family issues, while Toma stands by her side. Although it seems that it is Toma who has everything under control, he is merely following Ana, a woman whom he cannot understand. And when Ana finally conquers her fears and adapts to the outside world, Toma finds himself alone with a mountain of questions.
With this self-styled reworking of the novel Luminiţa, mon amour, director Cãlin Peter Betzer creates a careful study of mental illness and recovery, which follows the rise and fall of a stormy romantic relationship. Winner of the Silver Bear award for technical achievement at the Berlin Film Festival.
