100% fiction pretending to be real
4 January 2005 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

Don't be fooled, Bucharest is far from what is being portrayed in this movie. There are less beggars than here, in Montreal, there are some stray dogs, but not 1000's of them. Picking the most dramatic beggars and with continuous exaggeration, the movie convinces the audience that Bucharest is a city full of poor mutilated beggars and 1000's of stray dogs. How far from truth, but director and actor Thom Fitzgerald can only rely on this sensation to create any positive interest in his movie. Putting down Bucharest also looks like a hidden denial, here at home in Canada, where one wonders how this country is now so behind even when compared to an ex-communist Eastern block country such as Romania. Bucharest is far more civilized than any Canadian city. (look up civilized in the dictionary) One should wonder what is a Canadian child-pornographer doing in Romania? Hmmmm....
