Here is the toboggan… here's the prison for small children… a cat… a bunny… two stars in the sky… "
A lost childhood. Two children explore the dilapidated entrails of a deserted factory, looking for bits of scrap metal for money. Through a patient camera, the film follows the behavior of the boys in their struggle for survival.
Where does the playing end and the work begin?
"I personally find The Bed is Broken a special piece, brave in its austere rigorous visual style and elliptical storytelling, which "strips to the bone" the language and manages, through this very "simplicity" to achieve a strong emotional effect. "
Adina Pintilie (Film Director, Producer, Curator BIEFF)
"The Bed is Broken works with subtlety, silence and an eerie visual sense. It gets you so close to these deprived kids, so much that the files they throw at each other hit you as well. Finally, the heart is broken as much as the whole world in which they live in. "
Alexandru Solomon (Film Director, Producer)
"The Bed is Broken is this exceptional "film", an observation, a piece of visual art, a documentary that takes us "à l'intérieur" of the mood of two boys, of post- communist Romania, inside ourselves. "An object d'Art". "
Tania Rakhmanova (Film Director, Producer)
