Finally I found it !
1 May 2004 | by NikiunoSee all my reviews

Hi, I finally found a russian-language version of MA-MA. The movie has still the same fascination as seen several years ago while I was young. I searched all over romania, but I was not able to find a version woth the original, romanian language. If you like Ma-Ma you need to see "VERONICA". I am very sorry that the romanian film-industrie is not able to provide new films with the quality of the movies from the years between 1970-80. I hope that sometimes these old movies will be released on DVD. Maybe someone will remaster these old movies and bring them back on the big screen. Thanks Bye NIKI
