Marius Florea Vizante,
It seems that 15 it's a film raising some very serious questions about how cinema may be a source of coping with our recent history. Is 15 - a film that evokes the days of the Romanian Revolution from December 1989 which led to the new achieved Romanian democracy - a good piece of cinema because it brings back those tragic moments? For me, this film is a failure. Not a complete failure, but still a failure. The film implies an emotional impact on those who know what the December '89 Revolution was all about: the journalist who comes, after 15 years, to Romania, to find a child who was born during those days, a journalist who is searching for the way Romanians dealt with the moment they gained their freedom. Unfortunately, the technique spoils this whole idea: the sound and the music are appalling, the dialogues are artificial, the shooting is dull. They really make this film un-watchable and make you wonder on the so-called "great Romanian directors"...
