Quotes

Weasel: [inside nuclear bunker] It's like the Tower of Babel, only in reverse. We're like the generation of the flood who tried to reach God. Digging and digging, 10-20-30-50 feet under the ground, as deep as technology will get us. And all from fear! Fear of flood, fear of the apocalypse...

guessing a person's last wishes
17 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A suicide bomb victim's body lays unclaimed. The only thing known about her is where she worked--a large mechanized bakery.

Turns out the bakery had fired her and now the press coverage doesn't look good for them. She was fired by a supervisor who fell in love with her and he was worried about the personal problems this unrequited love would cause.

A weasel like journalist is trying to smear the bakery and they want to make sure that doesn't happen.

The owner of the bakery also wants to do the right thing and has her human resources manager accompany the body back to Romania where the dead woman had a son and family.

But...where would she really have wanted to be buried??

You get to see a very authentic view of urban and rural Romania the part the tourist brochures don't show.

The one part I did not understand is why she is a Greek Orthodox? Must have been ethnically Jewish although if covered I missed that part.

The film is different and really good. Highly recommend it.
