Adam and Eve

Dite Dinesz | Romania | 2003 | 24'

The film is shot in a remote Romanian mountain village. Here, the men, like biblical Adam, work hard in the field day after day. The women, like Eve, keep the house and have many children. Based on interviews, the film tells stories of the past and talks about hardships of the present. It alternates between splendid mountain scenery and moments in the daily life of the villagers. The filmmaker differentiates between the roles of men and women in village life. While men are observed working in the field, women are filmed in the setting of their homes, where they spend the largest part of their lives. This is a film with touching stories about people living in a dying rural world.
