There is a longer scene in the movie showing a bus trying to turn around on muddy soil. The bus is a Rocar bus, which has been produced only after 1990, and it has stickers on its doors, which surely have not been used before 1989. See more »

Indeed...the best Romanian film in a while. It took me back to those years when I was probably about Lalalilu's age and gave me a small piece of my childhood back, when on the one hand everything was a game, on the other it seemed 'normal' (to me) that a child has to suffer from cold and be ill every winter. I realized the tragedy of that only after the communist regime was gone. But what's more important, you don't have to know anything about those years in order to relate to this films, because IT relates to YOU. An honest film, lovely characters, great story and storytelling, totally unpretentious and charming. Great acting and cinematography, lovely directed. Definitely an A+ film from Romania so...expect more...;)
