Storyline

Delia, a young Romanian girl, comes to Bucharest with her parents to collect a prize she has won in a contest organized by a soft-drinks company. The prize is a beautiful new car. All Delia has to do now is appear in front of the camera in a commercial. All goes well until it becomes clear that Delia and her parents have very different ideas about what to do with the new car. Meanwhile, the contest's sponsor needs a radiant prize-winner with a gleaming smile. A wicked satire and a psychological portrait of a society perverted by its slavery to capitalism and consumerism. Written by Warsaw Film Festival

did not enjoy it at all
21 October 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Sadly I completely disagree with the previous comment. This pathetic excuse for a movie was poorly shot and edited, with a weak - or rather -non-existent story line. Better suited to be a work of a film student in his or her first year, not a feature film representing Romanian cinematography worldwide. Could possibly make a decent short film... Or a TV film... if the story were expanded and more characterisation added. Zero portrayal of the Romanian society's struggle with consumerism, which theme it purports to tackle, or any broader social commentary that a viewer may relate to. The original idea was good maybe but in no way viable enough for a full-blown feature. Don't waste your time! The first time ever when I wanted to ask for my money back at the cinema...
