...a cultural experience.
4 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

A few days ago I was walking through Cora and out of curiosity I stopped at the press stand to look through some magazines. By chance, I found a book that caught my eye. I turned it over and I read the synopsis : "everything you didn't see in the movie". So I started to read a few pages.. I pulled out my phone and saved the name of the movie. Today I've had the opportunity to see it. It's exquisite. The soundtrack is a bit unprofessional at times, mainly because of a few string that sounded generated and not recorded. But besides this minor flaw, I can truly say that the journey, although a bit extreme and romantic aesthetics in it, was a very Romanian one. And it is nice to find yourself lost in the artistic beauty of a tragedy.. but also in a day to day cultural mirror. Bad habits, ignorance, mistakes, the death of family values, lack of respect, streets, filth, carelessness, loneliness at an old age, indecency.. the shallow hope of an absolution that is not consistent with reality.. All here. And more. No verbs.
