I went to this movie's screening as not my choice, somebody wanted to see and I was coming along. Though I was sitting in that theater expecting for some boredom, something else happened, it really opened an era in my cinematic life plans, now I want to watch other Romanian movies. What I liked about this movie is, it has good balance, between being funny and still also giving right information and director's own interpretation of it. Another fact this movie showed me was how workers everywhere around the world face similar problems, although Turkey has never had a communist era -but hey we had the military coup and other stuff, so still we have been taking in some punches too- I was still be able to relate to the problems Romanian people facing at the start of 90s. This is a movie for anyone from East Europe, feels like this movie is not just Romanian, but it spoke for a region and an era. Thank you for the pleasing 93 minutes!
