The debut of Romanian documentary filmmaker Tudor Platon follows the story of five women in their seventies who go on an annual holiday in the countryside. The week-long trip offers the director a unique opportunity to enter the universe of these seventy-year-old ladies. Cica - the director's grandmother, Nana - the godmother and other friends relax together, sharing their life stories full of nostalgia, funny stories, gossip and everyday troubles. Away from all worries, they speculate about the existence of time and enjoy their moments together. "Life can be hard, but moving on and having fun helps." Glimpses into their lives through conversations full of useful life wisdom and scenes shot with the lightness of the moment present a picture of long-standing friendship and generational understanding.
Tudor Platon is an image director, a graduate of the film image section of UNATC Bucharest. His filmography includes short and feature films selected and awarded at festivals such as Toronto, Cannes, Locarno and Warsaw. "Dollhouse" is his directorial debut and is part of a larger and very personal project about his family.
