Radu Jude – O umbra de nor AKA Shadow of a Cloud (2013)


“My wretched life has passed like a deep sleep, like the shadow of a cloud, withering like a wildflower. And the joints of my limbs have begun to weaken, to twist and shake in my body. And my evil deeds have surpassed the countless grains of sand in the sea.” (fragment from a prayer)
In a torrid summer day in Bucharest, the priest Florin Florescu is called to a dying woman’s side for saying a prayer.

This short film is part of the Aferim! blu-ray.
