"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.

A worthy if not great comedy
29 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is my first attempt at reviewing a film.

I happened to catch this last night on On-Demand and chose it largely due to having a mild interest in Eastern Europe.

I am astonished that nobody else has reviewed this film, so here is my $0.02:

This is a worthy comedy and has in its favor that it seemed to get funnier as the story progressed. I don't think it worth a trip to the cinema, but definitely consider checking it out on On-Demand or via other means of electronic reception. At least it's something different from most of what's out there. A few of the characters are quite well done (the mercurial gay director, the mafioso landlord, the chief of police).

I would like to think this shows great promise for the future careers of those who made it.
