Storyline

Returned home after a year of army, Vio discover with surprise his friends and the neighborhood changed fundamentally. The area is now controlled by Davinci, a drug dealer because of which his father Vio lost the house, and for his friends, beatings with rival gang have become a way of life. Nevertheless, Vio is happy: he met the love of his life, Ramona, and between them grows a love story and they will do anything for that love, including him fighting on Davinci, who wants to take Ramona as his wife by force. Unfortunately, love proves to be not a sufficient condition for Vio and Ramona to fulfilling the dream,of love but makes you understand that not even in death those two can not be separated.

Good idea, bad directing
21 June 2009 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

This is the sum of corporate cinematography for Romania. A somewhat big studio wanted to make a movie about a Romanian reality, addressing mostly a Romanian target, inspired from Bollywood movies. And it's a BIG fail. Although the music is not my favorite genre, I must say it really is good. The plot might have been good has there been a director that actually knew what the hell he was doing. The cinematography sucks all the way. Bad filming, bad choice of actors (although some of them did pretty good), moronic editing... You name it, it was bad. It's just one of the films that could have been good, if not for the big studio guys. But isn't it the way these days ? If you have money, you can do whatever you please. Even spoil a potentially good movie !
