Uninteresting dream
21 April 2016 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"Visul lui Liviu" or "Liviu's Dream" is a Romanian live action short film written and directed by Corneliu Porumboiu. The early 2000s had a new wave of young Romanian filmmakers and this film here (as well was the maker) may be among the most known. I cannot really see the appeal though. I think there were some good moments, but overall it was not enough, not even for a short film. The acting was so-so and same goes for the script. Porumboiu is still among the more known Romanian filmmakers these days, but I can see why he did not manage an international breakthrough. I may be doing him wrong if he improved in the last 10 years, but this film here is nothing really special. I hoped this would be better looking at the IMDb rating. Not recommended.
