    Is There Life Before Death ? (2002) - Andras Feldmar
    http//wp.me/p48646-2kOGod plays sax, the Devil violin (2004) -
    Alexandra Gulea (Dumnezeu la saxofon dracu la vioara)Eating,
    sleeping, popping pills; eating, sleeping, popping pills; and
    sleeping again. These are the only activities that seem to enliven
    the everyday life of 300 people living in a Romanian psychiatric
    home, in a forgotten region somewhere between the capital of
    Bucharest and the southern Carpathians. The unvarying cycle that the
    body adopts, between medication and wakefulness, resembles the
    movement of the old oil pumps that constitute the landscape
    surrounding the home. Substituting as an inmate of the asylum, the
    camera attempts to show us from the inside this daily monotony,
    these small acts in the fight for survival. It lets us see the
    heaviness of the dormitory and corridor walls, hear the doors
    squeaking, hear the perpetual shouts of the attendants, perceive the
    inner void of solitary beings surrounded by walls of men.300
    patients are packed, sometimes 12 to a room, in to the Romanian
    psychiatric institution of Gura Ocnitei. The daily routine is
    reduced to medication, sleep and food, without any kind of therapy
    or reintegration programme. The internees of all backgrounds (from
    mentally or physically disabled to social cases) are left to
    themselves with no hope of ever leaving this place, no perspective
    or future.Thus, the inhabitants have created their own closed
    community. Inside this very peculiar society, people become friends,
    get married and split up again. They trade with coffee and
    cigarettes which have come to replace official currency. And above
    all, music brings some colour in this dullness, and allows them to
    dream of another world.The film, shot in still and precise long
    takes, reflects the immobility of daily life in the institution and
    offers at the same time an impressive witness to mans urge to
    survive.
