spider web
13 October 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

fragile, fascinating, delicate, cruel theme. and impressive way to say a painful story with humor, wise and art to present an entire universe. in fact, exercise of Mălăiele fascinating science to build a perfect product , exercise of Balkanian nuances, testimony about a dictatorship, slice of Ionesco style, wonderful trip in heart of absurd and fear. an extraordinary experience. or only a remember as warning. nothing special. basic elements, real good cast, atmosphere of many Romanian movies. and a little magic. a sweet difference. and bitter air of an old picture. a spider web in spring wind. that is final impression. and a tragedy as page from ash book of memory. nothing more. but in final, emotion is great and the tear has as root a very small smile.
