This one is really made in bad taste. What exactly is it? A musical? A silly science fiction piece? A fairy tale for the adults? The only thing, they get bored after just few minutes of watching. The actors grossly overdo it, and the whole thing tumbles down into farce. Could have been so much better! Terry Gilliam's "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" gives a good example of how this kind of film should be done properly. As for this one, it provokes no emotions and creates no ideas. Weirdness reigns supreme, and it is not a good kind of weirdness... I've seen quite a few excellent Romanian films but this isn't one of them. My verdict: a complete waste of time...
