Romanian politic and life reality (i live in Romania)
This movie is the best ever made in Romania. Almost all characters does really exist in life and the insistence on exquisite food, abuses, luxury and bad taste is for real and are here, in Romania. This is the best Romanian movie i ever seen. And please, excuse the quality of my English ;)
About Romania: All important figures, from police officers to the president commit abuses and fight for rights that normal people doesn't dream. Many times we read this in newspapers and nothing happens. On a national TV post, a senator ask the reporter how she can put her nose into his business. Romanian president told a reporter something like "gipsy beach", took her mobile and pretend her to came into his office tomorrow and it will give her back.
It is a very real movie.
