Storyline

The story takes place in 2010, in a post-communist Romania, in which some of those who fully lived in the communist period don't seem to fit anymore. The main character and her husband are about to receive a visit from their daughter, who has been living in the States for the last 10 years, and her American boyfriend. While having dinner with her reunited family, she realizes that she actually liked it in the communist era, that she was better off, and that most of the characteristics of a true communist do gather in her. During the whole movie, she has flashbacks from that "golden" period, and somehow tries to recapture what her life once was, while trying to figure out and solve her daughters' money problems. It is a funny movie, especially for those who know something about communism and what happened then in Eastern Europe, though based on weird yet very real situations people were faced with back than (until 1989).

A nice movie
14 March 2014 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

The movie is, well, nice. As a Romanian that lived a significant part of the life under communist rule, then witnessed the changes after 1989, I got the message. It's a nice movie, a rather friendly-sarcastic than critical approach to our approach on life. One step close to being too "minimalist" at times, or too "caricaturesque" or forced at times, the film is pretty close to what Romanian life and attitude to life means. Don't expect to find the book ad literam. The film is a little subversive, like some of the pre-1989 movies, and this is a carefully staged effect. The main character is very well portrayed by Luminita Gheorghiu. Great actress!
