Storyline

Somewhere in Palilula is placed in the 60s in Romania and tells the story of Serafim, a fresh graduate of medical school, brought by a gloomy whim of destiny to the town of Palilula. Nowhere, that is. Palilula is a ghost town, lost in the middle of the Vallahian plain. A quarantine area, a sanatorium, improbable hospital, a gynecological clinic in a settlement where no child is born. A community of Romanians who forgot their language, but not the nostalgia of their traditional music. Romanians with Danubian taste and disorientation. The young doctor Serafim will not get to practice his profession as a pediatrician, in this childless town. He will be drowning in the sweet and poisoned honey of the place, like a fly caught by a frog. Written by Anonymous

A movie that will literally blow your mind
25 April 2012 | by (Cluj-Napoca Romania) – See all my reviews

Did you liked A clockwork Orange? Do you love Michael Haneke movies? Do you like supra-realism and a theatrical form of movies? Oh well, this movie delivers this in a great form, good acting, excellent art directing and a little spoon of grotesque with a pinch of dark humor, oh, and the music is great as well.

The movie as a whole does not make much sense, but who cares? every piece of it surprises you, everything is different.

I really don't want to spoil anything from the movie, go out and see it, its worth it.

9/10
