On a road trip from Transylvania to Moldova in a Dacia (Romanian car) affectionately dubbed “Marita,” thirty-something Costi and his father Sandu (the veteran actor Alexandru Potocean), recall experiences from their distant past, memories that involve Sandu’s first wife and Costi’s mother, while traveling along in beautiful snow-capped scenery toward a family reunion. Now hardly more than a wreck, the aging Marita requires fine-tuning at nearly every pit stop. But when the car is back on the road, she seems to have oddly curative powers that stimulate memory and playfulness, as father and son travel along their precarious track through Romanian mountains. (Cristi Iftime, 2017, subtitles, 100 minutes)
