a Transylvanian family moves to the Wild West
15 January 2005 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I am a big western fan, and while I was browsing IMDb's western category, I bumped into this movie. It was a pleasant surprise, brings me pleasant memories when thinking, I saw this movie many years ago.

First of all, the title: The artist (female), the Dollars and Ardelenii(people living in Transylvania). The movie is part of a mini-series of 3 (if I remember correctly). The other two titles I know are The artist, the Oil and Ardelenii and The artist, the Little Baby and Ardelenii. All three movies are about a Transylvanian family, which is looking for a better life, and goes to conquer the American Wild West.

If you are not a Romanian, you will also enjoy this movie (a western comedy) not only about some tough people from Ardeal (Transylvania)wich shivers the west, but you will also find out about Transylvanian habits and traditions (I will never forget the oldest of the brothers, who is the leader of the clan, who always slaps the youngest telling him to shut up because he's stupid and young) I don't want to tell you more, part because I don't want to spoil your pleasure, part because I don't remember, but if you can put your hands on any of those three movies, don't hesitate, you will enjoy.
