must see it !
9 February 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

a poor man. his story. gray. basic. common.nothing special. an ordinary Romanian. a way to Poland. and lines of hell.scapegoat for a theft. ambiguous evidences Kafkaesque justice. blind doctors. deaf consul. and hunger strike as only weapon. from Krakow cell to death. a tragedy like many others. tragedy of a crumb-person isolated by the indifference. story of Claudiu Crulic. 32 years. from Central Europe. victim. obstacle for a Foreign Minister, subject of news and axis for few late investigations. a man like a fly or spider or chicken. without price, without importance. only a shadows. the movie is not a pledge, not a documentary. it is a tale. common. gray. subtle. with slices of black humor. testimony about passing of a man in life. the verdict can be given only by the public. a isolated case ? an accident ? a murder ? a fact ? must see it ! for its virtue of good film. for its virtue of mirror.
