Gabriel (Ionel Mihailescu) and Gabriela (Dana Voicu) live passionless lives until their virtual affairs reconnect them with each other.
Hello! How Are You? (Romanian: ) is a 2011 Romanian romantic comedy film directed by Alexandru Maftei. The film follows a couple whose relationship has become routine and stale after 20 years of marriage.
Musician Gabriel and dimpled dry-cleaning proprietress Gabriela live like two strangers who no longer see each other. But in humorous contrast to their staid, passionless lives, characters in a constant state of sexual arousal surround them. Their libidinous teen son, whose hilarious voiceover commentary intermittently provides important narrative information, prides himself on being the high school stud and aspires to a career in porn. Gabriela's sexy employee switches boyfriends the way she changes clothes. And despite being married, Gabriel's colleague is working his way through the female members of their orchestra. Ultimately, the two Gabys find their virtual affairs reconnect them with their own desires, but in a way less movie-fantasy and more satisfyingly real-life.
