Run away!
22 April 2001 | by MendelovichSee all my reviews

I have seen this film as a child. It seemed funny. Nowadays I saw it again and I honestly can say that this movie is so bad that it should be banned. The only positive thing in this film is the scenery. The acting and the scenario are so poor, that I cannot understand how anyone could have produce them. The movie deals with a well known Romanian folk-hero, Pacala, a sly country boy, which resolves every problem in an unexpected way. The written stories of this hero are very funny and very qualitative. The movie fell far away from the origins.
