Groupthink
12 January 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

This movie shows how the goods of the communist state were hijacked by the new "kapitalists" of Romania after 1989. The country gets indebted and the future generation will pay the price.

What I found interesting is the group pattern of thinking. The Romanian corrupted VIPs feel they don't have enough because they compare themselves with each other and there's always someone that has stolen more. Even if they are filthy reach, they cannot stop stealing because of the competition that creates a false impression of having not enough. However, there's always also the other side of the story, these days one of the guys in the movie is prosecuted for undermining the country's economy.
