Storyline

Leopold is a widower School Director. His housekeeper announces him on the first day of his retirement, that she will be leaving to her homeland, Romania, in order to be with her daughter who just gave birth to her grandson. Leopold thinks it's time to find a suitable wife, and his friend and neighbour Julian, register him in on an internet date-site. Leopold has an estranged relationship with his only son, and between the dates to meet his perfect match, young Rumanian Alina enters Leopold's life, replacing her aunt at housekeeping, presenting to him a different side of life.

For a start, I wouldn't call it a comedy
31 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

It is a good film, but I was expecting far better: after reading people's comments and also being fan of Jan Decleir who is indeed a very good actor. I wouldn't call this film a comedy at all, but that in itself is not a problem. The problem is that it is all very predictable and stereotypical: older lonely Westerner, desperate young Eastern European woman... blah-blah-blah, you name it. Yes, there were funny moments (mainly his meetings with other "potential brides"), but the whole picture is very bleak, just as the interior of the hero's house. Even Jan Decleir cannot rescue this film. You know in advance how it is going to end. You know exactly what the heroes are going to do next. Maria Popistasu is OK, but nothing extraordinary. And, most important, none of the heroes of this film deserves any compassion. In one word - boring.
