Despite the fact that the cast includes the most renowned Romanian actors, this movie is a failure. The theme of the movie (politicians and big shots mafiosi swimming together in the mud of corruption) cries out for attention and many would consider it appealing, but the way this movie instantiates this theme is at most questionable. Basically, the movie consists in a succession of dialogs which take place in restaurants. The insistence on exquisite food is pathetic and even annoying. The story is almost missing and the movie is flat from the beginning until the end, which can be easily anticipated. The actors do a good job, the image is also good. However, because of the fact that it lacks a real storyline, you won't miss anything if you skip this one.
