Awful movie
2 March 2009 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

The film is a parable of Romania under Ceausescu, and most of the filming was carried out at the "House of People". It presents an oppressive climate of a society ranked on different levels in a hotel, so the story is basically a parable. The story follows the promotion of Alex, from the position of young employee to the manager of the hotel. His mother tells Alex, presumably a former member of the State Security, that he is the son of the tyrant who is at the head of the country. Named head of the hotel ("the country"), Alex receives a mandate to inform the dictator that the hotel is subjugated by hunger, cold and lies. You'll find out at the end if Alex was able or not to complete his mission. It's very difficult to watch this movie, 95% of the time being filmed in dark places. Better be warned, don't waste your time watching it. Or even better, I recommend you forget this movie exists, move along, there's nothing here to see.
