an exceptional short movie, 2 November 2004
Author: nuclearbomb

This short movie intends to focus on one issue sociologically known as cultured shock. the film presents the condition of average Romanian in democratic Romania who finds out that the life and the problems are not different from Communist period, and if you want something, you must bribe around to get it.

So, our main character is fired after a long while, he is around 50 and needs to get a similar job, but the only job available is one inferior. He is forced to take it because the lack of money.

My opinion is that you have to live in Romania so that this movie can be as real and tragic as it seems.
