Somewhere, sometime... a world in which time runs the same as stones falling implacably on stones. A self-sufficient universe, with rules that escape the common logic but are perfectly valid. Days go by, between daily routine and endless conversations about life, death, God, and weather forecasts. What is divine and what is not? Who brings and who stops the rain? After all, what is normal and what is not? On the fragile and impossible to distinguish border between fiction and documentary, in a contemplative and visually refined way, the film follows the existence of a marginal community that has a profound and unaltered human value, though it's considered "null" from a social utilitarian point of view. Blatantly absurd actions get a second meaning which is deeply emotional. The only way to escape the essential absurdity of this existence is through love.
I saw her first in the church. I could not take my eyes off her. She is an artist, a princess. She is highly respected. I wanted to get closer. I wanted to get intimate. I needed her trust… I had to show her… A film about the possibility of familiarization, about the connection of two people.
Two characters, a carriage and a horse. Where are they going? Towards what? Joy, torment and undefinable music. Vulnerable, yet not ready to surrender. They are the poets of time.
Fata Morgana: a mirage and optical phenomenon. A modern fairy tale about young, single men in a little village tucked away somewhere in Romania. Remaining unmarried is regarded as the greatest of failures in this society, and there is only one girl left in the village: Elena.
