One day Ion, a 75 year old Romanian man, accidentally receives a Medal of Honor for some 'heroic' actions back in WW2, times he barely remembers. The medal forces Ion to reconsider his whole life.

Goofs

Until 1996, Corneliu Vadim Tudor had never been a candidate of the Romanian presidential elections, so aging war veteran Ion I. Ion couldn't vote him instead of Ion Iliescu in 1992. See more »

Romanian Evolution
24 November 2009 | by (Greece, Thessaloniki) – See all my reviews

I saw this film on the Thessaloniki International Film Festival 2009 a week ago. The theater was full. We are in the post communist era during the 90s. The hero is an old man that his wife doesn't speak to him for the past years and his son is in Canada and doesn't want to talk to him. The government sends him a letter letting him know that he has been awarded with a medal for his valor during world war II. Its really a very humane movie. Very kind, romantic. It keeps you going for the whole time and you really want to see why his wife is not talking to him, why his son is avoiding to talk to him on the phone and how he is trying to recover the lost time. And the ending is very very good. Lets say that it left me with a smile on my face. Romanian cinema is at its best. A really good, honest and bittersweet cinema. Movies like this one, The Paper will be Blue and The Death of Mr Lazarescu proves that we will have a bright "cinematic future".
