Boooring!

I'm not gonna bother myself with giving a detailed argumentation of why this movie is such a mess. It simply doesn't worth anyone's attention because it really doesn't seem to try to capture it. It's just another realistic movie... because that's exactly what the romanian cinema was missing, realism! We don't get enough of that in our REAL lives, we need realism in cinema too. The more real, the better. Imagination? In a romanian movie? Blasphemy!!! I rated it 2 and not 1 because we get to see Monica's behind; and when someone's rear end is the highlight of the movie... well I think that pretty much sums it up.
