Great Movie!!!
5 October 2009 | by (Iceland) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at RIFF in Iceland. It is a great movie with a very good performance from all the actors. 'its like watching a reality show.... The story is very touching and the way it is shoot confirmed once again that Romanian cinema it is probably one of the best in the world at this time. Has a lot from the Italian "neorealism" but keeps its originality. It is very violent but not necessary as action but more from a situation point of view. It is not easy to explain, there is fear from the beginning to the end. I read that the film was banned at the festival in Venice were it had the world premiere. I don't really see the reason. Congrats to the team that made it! I understood that Cristi Puiu it is also involved. We love "Lasarescu" too! Puiu won in 2005 the best prize in Reykjavik. I think that in Romania they must have a great film school.
