go and watch how u can change in worse or in better
19 May 2010 | by See all my reviews

This film is almost perfect as many of the Romanian movies. Almost reality show not a movie. is a movie about real life real people with real life. Is a movie about Romania after the 89 revolution. About drama the people were living. Is about us and how we can adapt, we can change almost to somebody else. I recommend this movie as being a deep understanding one. Sometimes people are accusing others for doing things that they believe they won't and finish doing those things. this movie is not a fun one by far cause i finished watching and i had a bad taste in my mouth. and i remained thinking about many things. thinking about the things you can buy, about things you can get by creating illusions, about the people that can choose to do the good or the bad thing. don t loose it
