Tedious story, sloppy directing
24 September 2009 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

After all the fuss they made over it, I expected for something at least watchable, but no luck. The story is very wrong written, following a character without personality, who simply got a bad case of allergy - and so what? This makes it lame from the start. Then, it becomes worse. He looks for a doctor who seems to be arrested or shot by the SS - and here it should have started to build up tension, suspense, drama, compassion for the victim, hatred against the criminals. Well, it only gathers boredom. And it also falsifies the historical truth - it was the Nazi army who persecuted and killed the Jews in Romania, not the Romanian army who did its best to spare them. The film makers should make a better research before starting to shoot a movie.
