FULL SYNOPSIS

Romanian director Lucian Pintilie helmed this French-Romanian drama that opens on the outskirts of Budapest. Dimitri, aka Mitou (Costel Cascaval) raises pigs for a living, but he's due to begin two years of military service the next day. Clad in hot pants, waitress Elena, aka Norica (Dorina Chiriac) matches Mitou in knocking back shots of vodka. Although Norica is engaged to marry Gili, owner of the rundown roadside sausage stand where she works, she accompanies Mitou to his spare apartment. Resentful of his family and obsessed with Norica, the stubborn, headstrong Mitou is uncompromising and ready for a final showdown with authority figures. Shown at the 1998 Venice Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
