There is a series of good Romanian films which are usually called the new Romanian wave, like the excellent "4, 3, 2", "Beyond the Hills", "Child's pose". Those are the most representatives, but there are also some others, like "Somwhere in Palilula", "California Dreamin'", "Silent Wedding" which are also really good films. But, in order to have some films of great quality, is almost evident that there are some non value films, and, in my opinion "Everybody in Our Family" is exactly this kind of production. The acting is poor, even the actors are well known for light productions and entertainment sketches, the story isn't believable, no trace of psychological in this film, just a wish to be a special kind or dark movie, a failure of dark movie.
