This is a mockery. The Germans speak German badly. The Italians speak Italian badly. The concept of allergy was just discovered. But in a hole like Moldova there is someone who not only heard of the concept, but can also treat it. A chimera. Maybe that was a good idea.
The only merit I can find this movie: it talks about facts long buried in Romania. The facts are glossed whenever possible. Still, just because these hurt the extreme nationalism of Romania, people feel obliged to take a political stance. Even here, in IMDb, you have people who support the idea to talk about the ugly past of Romania and who think this is a good movie and the right wingers who think this is a badly made movie. The reality is in the middle. It is a piece of junk. But an important piece of junk. And this movie lets some air in a closed country. After decades of showing only movies that glorify mindless blood shed this one present a more decent view. The war is still not ugly. The people are still heroic. Yet death is not prescribed in the Heavens.
