Storyline

Delia, a young Romanian girl, comes to Bucharest with her parents to collect a prize she has won in a contest organized by a soft-drinks company. The prize is a beautiful new car. All Delia has to do now is appear in front of the camera in a commercial. All goes well until it becomes clear that Delia and her parents have very different ideas about what to do with the new car. Meanwhile, the contest's sponsor needs a radiant prize-winner with a gleaming smile. A wicked satire and a psychological portrait of a society perverted by its slavery to capitalism and consumerism. Written by Warsaw Film Festival

Would have made a good short
22 June 2010 | by KIM_HARRISSee all my reviews

If this had been shot as a short film of about 20-30 minutes, it would have worked very well but as a full length feature film it fails because it becomes frankly boring.

The scripting is quite sharp and the acting is very proficient. Cinematography is tight and effective. The film makes some good points about relationships between parents and their grown children and about consumerism. There is some nice satire on the commercial film industry.

Unfortunately, despite some quite funny dialogue and a few dramatic moments, I found myself looking at my watch and saying to myself "yes, I get the point. In fact, I got the point about an hour ago". Despite the full length of the film, the characterisation was limited and I really didn't care about the characters.

A disappointment.
