The story of a farmer who all of the sudden is faced with lots of problems and tries to resolve them in a very clever manner
10 August 2006 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

This is a great movie to watch, since Victor Rebengiuc, the actor playing Ilie Moromete has the most convincing acting i've ever seen. I would compare him with great Hollywood names such as Robert DeNiro or Al Pacino. And in doing so, he plays according to the book and very into the character.

Ilie Moromete can be considered a very funny man, because his comments are acid and humorous in the same time, always striking his discussion partners with his answers.

He is also very cunning, resolving many of his problems in a very intelligent manner.
