Un prinț și jumătate

One and a Half Prince

There’s a uninhibited, casual intimacy to this portrait of a trio of friends. Iris (Iris Spiridon), Marius (Marius Manole) and István (István Téglás) live together as a defacto family unit in an apartment in Bucharest. But their close inter-dependence is threatened when Iris develops a crush on László (László Mátray), a physically imposing poet who lives in rural Transylvania, where he gallops around on horses like some kind of modern-day fairytale prince. The romance of the idea of him is clearly a big part of the appeal for highly-strung and impulsive Iris. (Wendy Ide, Screen Daily)
