C. Thomas Howell,
"Made In Romania" is the story of a producer who is given the chance to realize his dream project; to film an adaptation of an obscure, beautifully written Victorian novel, "The Tides of Reason". Disillusioned after years of making low budget genre films, the producer readily accepts the demands of his less than legitimate financiers. Namely, the production be filmed entirely in Romania to take advantage of a complicated and slightly suspicious tax deal. Shot in documentary style, this behind-the-scenes comedy deftly and inexorably exposes the painful reality of runaway film production. Way off the radar in deepest, darkest, rural Romania the hopelessly disconnected production veers swiftly off the tracks as bizarre personalities, cultural, economic and language issues quickly combine to send the production spiraling into hysteria.

and i luv jennifer tilly! this flic is krap! doesn't offer anything beyond the opening screen split five times. after that it's a down hill slide into a complete non-story.
every character is uninteresting, boorish, and repetitive in personality. was this on purpose? i do not know. the plot/story goes nowhere and the ending made no sense to me.
really, i don't know why i'm bothering to write this review. i just really like jennifer tilly but not in this movie. after watching i was sad, confused, and empty in what i had seen. advertised as a comedy - it is not. it's a disturbed story about disturbed people. and the director did not 'pull it off' as the saying goes.
skip this one - save you cash for another movie.
