47ème Paralèlle (Paris)
The story takes place in the year of the Eastern European changes, in a little mountain village, in the middle of nowhere. Radi and Ladu are good friends. They spend all their time together. They roam the countryside, they watch the trucks on the lower highway pass by and what is most important, they go to movies together. All the people in the village are ardent movie-goers. One day the motorist who delivers the films from the center to the mountains has an accident. Children mourn for their friend and the village is left without films. When winter comes the barkeeper discovers long-forgotten film reels in the cellar of the movie-theatre. Ladu and the barkeeper’s wife, Lina, glue the old films together, creating newer and newer stories. In a snow-bond village, cut off the rest of the world, people plunge into a dreamworld. Meanwhile Siniak, the woodcutter, is looking for a chance to be near his childhood love, Lina. Ladu, who likes exciting stories, smells a tragedy...
