I don't absolutely agree with the negative comments:if you expected to see a xXx or Fast and furious movie, then you're just in the wrong place. Still I don't agree with doru_tudor (Same old Romanian stories): it's not about what the movie tells, it's about how it's done and the emotion it's able to produce. I don't even think Serban had in mind to tell something about the Romanian society(not like it's done in 4 luni 3 saptamini si 2 zile). I think you're just sad because those movies deliver a negative impression to the world about Romania (maybe it's true). But it's real, they tell something true. Obviously I'd be glad to see someday a different subject movie? But meanwhile I have no reason to think the present movies aren't good.
And, yeah finally :) I don't agree it's not a movie for everyone :) Maybe it's not for the kids (see above) searching for I'm-the-best-i'll-kick- your-ass movie but it's nice and everybody should see it.
