Reinventing Realism — New Cinema from Romania: Box


box snip and cropped

 

In a gritty gym in the city of Sibiu, 19-year-old Roma boxer Rafael (newcomer Rafael Florea) trains for a big fight. Elsewhere, in a more picturesque part of the Transylvanian town, thirty-something actress Cristina (Hilda Péter, KATALIN VARGA) rehearses for a new Hungarian-language play for a demanding director (filmmaker Cãtãlin Mitulescu). After a chance passing in the street, Rafael begins following the alluring Cristina around town on a daily basis, seemingly content to just watch her from a distance. But after Cristina notices and confronts him, their interaction goes in a surprising new direction.
