Niki et Flo

Fortnight 2003, Feature film, 1H30mn

Synopsis

Who are Niki and Flo? Niki is a retired colonel whose son has just died in an accident. His daughter and her husband, the son of Flo, want to leave Romania behind for the United States. Flo is a « Jack of All Trades » whose hidden tyrannical nature will find a victim in Niki. This dominating libido is the subject of a film that shows the depossesion of one man by another. Flo will rob Niki of his few material possesions, his moral values, and finally, his « sense of his own dignity ».
