The European Union is rapidly becoming a more important part of the daily life of European citizens. National countries have decided to transfer important powers in an unprecedented way. Budgetright, energy policies, border control and monetary issues are all decided upon by Brussels. But what does this mean for people's lives and how democratic is this development? Filmmaker Peter Vlemmix goes on a journey to uncover the core of the European project. Who pull the strings, what are the agenda's for the next years and why is Euro-skepticism growing. Does the European Union provide a better life for European people, or is it benefiting a few? This is the question addressed by Euromania, a documentary film containing interviews with some of Europe's most influential policy makers as well as personal stories from people directly touched by European decisions.

Can we transfer powers back to the countries?
Very difficult, you cannot simply take one law and see we put it back in the national box, it's is all mixed-up and connected.

I am not a person who watches a lot of documentaries about politics and so. But my brother sent me this one. I'm from Spain and most people here have good view of European Union. So did I. But this film really makes me think. Why didn't i know that EU has so many problems? That it is not so democratic. As the film shows clearly the secrecy is the big problem. Documents are not given to parliament, lobbyists -15000!- have much influence. And it all happens because most of us see Europe as the big peace project, the Nobel price winners. I feel a bit angry and sad. Not sure if I will vote again in the next elections. This should be in Spanish television.
