My Big Fat Bessarabian Wedding
9 September 2012 | by josephsyuSee all my reviews

This is a totally enjoyable movie that gives international audiences a look at Bessarabian wedding traditions while still being universal enough to be appreciated by general audiences. The two leads give strong performances that make you empathize with the difficulties they're encountering during the ceremonies while at least one or two of the supporting cast will remind you of relatives you've met at weddings you've actually attended.

Although this film does not seem to have the mainstream distribution it deserves and is mainly playing at specialized film festivals, if you get the chance to check it out I highly recommend that you do so. It's a fun movie that will make you feel good while still giving you just enough substance to talk about with your friends at the end.
