This is a decent & funny road-movie even by international standards, the characters are cool, but to be honest, all I was looking at was the scenery. I live in Transylvania I know it and I love it, so this film was like a home-made video for me. It was just so awesome to watch an actual story taking place in places I knew too well; I was having fun by trying to identify where exactly each scene took place. I stopped many times in the same parking lot in the Bekas-straits, I know where that gypsy-palace is, I knew where that mine was and I kept recognizing the roads they were driving on. I know this is hardly relevant to anyone, I just felt like sharing, cause I sure had fun.
