If you want to see a good Romanian movie AND comedy in the same time, this is the right one! First of all it has the savor of the 90' when both enthusiasm and confusion were very high and the film team has put a lot of energy to recreate in detail the atmosphere. Secondly, it has a bit of salty stereotypes (the rich German, the gypsies) but just enough. The best of all is the unpredictable flow of action that does not let the viewer guess what the end might be. And the music of Goran Bregovic, even if it might sound a bit outdated and not so much in fashion today, it blends very well to the action. In short, a good movie that makes you laugh to tears!
