it is a kind of legend. for cast. for good memories of a generation. for its virtue as fresh air under Communist fog. in fact, it is a puzzle. different pieces. a memorable character. great actors. and a lot of forms of humor. it is the only comedy by Sergiu Nicolaescu. a surrogate but with a fantastic success to public. today, it is difficult to define it. it is nice, full of sparkles, but not extraordinary. but the flavor of that Romania, gray, cold, is the perfect argument to discover it again and again. sure, the situation humor is not real brilliant but it remains pleasant. and this is enough. for Romanians because out of theirs it is almost not expected to be more than another comedy. for me , it is a slice from great Amza Pellea huge art. and a journey in past. really charming.
