'Nest of Wasps', the film version of Alexandru Kiritescu's play is one of the greatest Romanian comedies which displays the the entire human typology of the beginning of the 20th century in Romania. The cast is absolutely great, some of the greatest Romanian actors manage to recreate the charm of the superficial life during those days.
The wasps are three sisters that are trying to relive their youth and although they are unkind, rude, selfish and superstitious, achieve their goal- they present the funny side of death. The film is a verbal and visual satire of the middle class (the bourgeoisie) in a time when Bucharest was known as 'The Little Paris from the East".
