Ana Maria Guran,

... but ultimately it fails to deliver. The screenplay is ok I guess; nothing original, but good enough to build a mildly entertaining movie. It doesn't reach this mediocre goal though because there's no intensity. The actors are just... doing their job I suppose. It's not like their acting is bad, but I can't feel any emotion, it's like their sole purpose is to cash the check and be done with it. As a first effort for director Anca Damian, it's not bad, but it could have been so much better.
