A cinema in Bucharest screened a controversial film about two lesbians who form a couple. Minutes into the film, a few members of the audience stood up, vehemently opposing the gay community. The press accused the Gendarmerie for not intervening to end the conflict. The film focuses on the destiny of the man who led the gendarme team, Nicu Holban, in the action at the museum, through an investigation by Liliana Calomfir, a young journalist known for her unusually daring reporting.
-Plot: A tenacious journalist hunts the leader of a local police squad accused of inaction at an LGBT event in Bucharest.
-A captivating movie that kept me on the edge of my sit. Congratulations, Dan Chisu!
-Powerful, well established characters and excellent acting: Major Nicu Holban (Mihai Calin), journalist Liliana Calomfir (Diana Cavallioti), Coman (Emanuel Parvu) and Anca (Ana Radu, only 17 at the time of the filming).
-Good script by Dan Chisu, with several themes woven into a colorful rug: the conflict between generations, the relationship with authority, attitudes toward homosexuality, the importance of tolerance, the depth of religion, various forms of love ...
-Being right feels good. With the flag of righteousness in hand, various characters stump on law and morals, hurting love ones and themselves.
-Several good final scenes in a quick succession. I thought: "What a good ending! But wait, this next scene is even better! OK, this is the real ending."
-A movie about imperfection.
-Quality cinematography by Adrian Silisteanu and editing by Letitia Stefanescu. It felt like a live news broadcast: dynamic, gripping.
-What a difference 5 MINUTES can make! (?)
-Let's go to the movies!
