Storyline

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. Maybe he wasn't all the time a loser. Maybe his life has a meaning. Maybe he means something to his family. Written by Anonymous

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 »

The generation conflict, a magnificent portrait!
7 June 2010 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

This is a typical European art movie. Very humane, it presents the drama o f an old man, whose well-intended, but wrong action has lead to the loss of his only son, who emigrated and refuses for more than six years to speak to his father. His wife, with whom he is living, refuses to speak to him as of punishment for his actions. The movie, quite dynamic compared to others of this kind, presents the daily life of a father who's right to speak to his son and to his grandchildren is refused. Things change when the man is awarded a medal of honor, which apparently becomes the main plot of the story. His life changes, as he suddenly receives a great attention from everybody, leading him to the impression that this is the opportunity to impress his son and reconcile. The story is seasoned with some post-communist era humor. Maybe the main attraction of the film is the main actor's acting. The director has managed to cast the perfect man for the role, who's act was just excellent. The movie has a great, touching, ending, which says it all! I find this film worth-seeing, from every point of view: story, directing, acting, etc...
