Another waste of time
16 March 2006 | by xTHranceSee all my reviews

Badly written and produced, this is not a movie, it is some sort of a home-made cinema about stupid people...There is no insight, no other idea except depicting the "Romanian reality", or that part of the Romanian reality that I don't think would or should interest somebody. While other directors try hard to make a decent film, some of them come with utter trash like this pretending that it's entertainment or, what is regrettably worse, artistic. It is sad to see, how directors that don't deserve to get their movies made, actually make it and hard working directors, that really have something to say are left behind, because it is considered that their movies wouldn't be "interesting enough". Romanians are used with filth and what is worse is that they seem to like it. They deny movies with and idea, with a strong direction in favor of crappy "home made videos" such as this one.

1/10
