An old movie is always a best one, especially here in Romania. Nea Marin miliardar is a comedy that everyone in Romania has to see it. The film is made by Sergiu Nicolaescu the best romanian director known mostly by his historic movies. The actors were the best in that time, Amza Pelea, Stefan Banica, etc. If this kind of movies would be making today Romania would have a chance in cinematography. I personally didn't like the movie, i wanted to see it because my friends said they always laugh at this movie. I didn't. I am a man that a few movies impress me, so this is not one of them. I suggest watching this movie with you're parents or with someone "old" maybe they will tell you things that may be interesting, like how was the movie received by them under the communism era.
