A small world of bourgeois intrigues and frivolities lived with intensity by its own protagonists: Pampon's lover, Didina is in love with the barber Nae, who is Mitza's lover, while she is Cracanel's lover. One letter starts the ball rolling and ugly characters start revealing themselves in a burlesque-like fashion. Written by
Is quite a simple movie to look at, as it does not contain way to much Romanian traditions that cannot resemble other cultures. The revelations come a long time after you saw it for the first time, when still part of the story is un-ended in your head, when you go through your life and see that mankind goes from absolute stupidity to geniality in a split second.
It does not matter the dramas, as it does not matter the story more than to give you a good perspective on hard life and easy living.
After seeing it twice you take this movie from a 7/10 to 9/10, 'cause your life perspective has changed.
There is more than an eye can meet.
This is not meant to be useful, don't read more, see the movie.
