I admire the courage of this movie's director for making such a great attempt to ridicule all the big mafia and the corruption among the nowadays politicians of Romania. Although they say at the beginning of the movie that all the characters are fictitious, the story is clearly referring to one big business-man who was arrested for corruption not too long ago in our country. Even the name of the character is very resembling... Who lives in Romania now knows what I mean and I think that his movie is good just for this courage of showing the "clever guys" which all should be busted in no time if a really justice would be made. I'm still waiting for that moment... :) So, well, the movie seemed quite short they could have made it longer but even so, I was pleasantly surprised by this and I think all our politicians should see this and recognize themselves in it. I hope many movies like this will be produced. I highly recommend it.
