Storyline

It's not just any day at the factory for our shady but somehow admirable hero Iulica (Gabriel Spahiu), Health and Safety Chief, but the morning after the glorious victory of underdogs Steaua Bucharest in the European Champions Cup over the mighty Barcelona - the only Romanian team ever to win it. Everyone, or at least the men, really wants to be celebrating this, but in fact it's Romanian Communist Party Day which is taking centre stage in the works canteen. Various lacklustre official events are on the cards, including a hilarious rendition of 'The Power of Love' by a stolid under-rehearsed factory choir, and a couple of official films Iulica's made, one a warning about the perils of disrespecting Health and Safety, the other the eponymous Adalbert's Dream, a clunky surreal effort, so named by Iulica 'because it sounds like a foreign film'. Always on the dodgy edge of things, ever cheerful, Iulica the family man is also managing a rather unenthusiastic one-eyed mistress (star of his ... Written by Anonymous
