perfume of old times. memories about friendship and love and survive in middle of a world of mud and honey. a seductive novel. a good director. good actors. and a film who use same recipes of Romanian films after 1990. the sentences and nudity. the phrases as words of oracle. the dusty atmosphere and the impression of improvisation. and the feeling to deserve be a better film. it is true, the novel by Mateiu Caragiale is not easy to be adapted. Mircea Veroiu style is, maybe, not the best option for introduce in the universe of the three friends. but the basic sin is ambition to use the freedom of creation possibilities for a large fresco who suffocate the potential of actors. and that is the wrong thing. because Ovidiu Iuliu Moldovan, Marius Bodochi, Mircea Albulescu, Răzvan Vasilescu are the perfect choices for theirs roles. but it is not enough. and, after the end of film, after scene by scene, a question is the only thing who remains from entire film - what is wrong with it ?
