Feature documentary
A love story between a man, a woman and his violin through the past and the present. It's a common story about life, death, passion and transmission. A cinematographic essay at the border of fiction and documentary.
Through the lives of Gheorghe and Sorina, Trio is more than a documentary. It is a poetic journey through contemporary Romania, a political reflection 30 years after the fall of communism, a reflection on being a Roma in Europe today, a film about social violence, but also a film about happiness, love and acceptance of others in their alterity.
Trio is an ode to music. Gheorghe’s violin punctuates each sequence, moving from the most dramatic chords to the most joyous notes.
But above all, Trio is a film that is there to take us on a journey that is both aesthetic and raw.
