Another film which totally misses the point
18 February 2008 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

This is an 'idealistic' film which does not have much in common with reality. Much in the tradition of Bram Stoker's Dracula Transilvania is presented as a rather mystical place which has nothing in common with reality. The approach is clearly made by and for the western market where there is an audience who believes and enjoys stories such as the 'Arabian Nights'. It might have been OK to make such a film some 10 years ago (and it was done - see Gadjo Dillo - astonishing resemblance), but today a more realistic and social-oriented approach would have been more useful. But if you have trouble locating Transilvania on the map and don't know yet that Transilvania is part of Romania you might enjoy this film and maybe find it moving. If you prefer a more down-to-earth and much funnier approach you should probably switch to some Kusturica classic.
