The ARO car factory went bankrupt and is about to be privatized in a week. It will be bought by a French company that intends to turn it into a snail farm. The currently factory has 3000 workers and only 300 will keep their jobs. Union leader George (Andi Vasluianu), (Ana's husband, father of Viorel) lives with a modest monthly sum, like all the other workers in the city. Not able to sleep, one night she sees a television commercial about a sperm bank that pays $ 50 for each donation. That's the mad idea to save workplace of his colleagues. If 1,000 workers sell their sperm for a week, they could raise enough money to save the factory from bankruptcy.Written by
Well this movie is a good comedy where you really laugh , one thing we Romanians we kind of forgot lately . If retrospectively I look back , the last 23 years I can enumerate the real good Romanian comedies on the fingers of one hand , now in the last couple of years I gotta recognize that they are more than that ; I can add URSUL and BUNA CE FACI ? for example so that is a good sign; we are recovering. What personally I like about this movie that is not only realistically in a funny way but also is full of hope(s) . It's really depicting that start of the 90's when we were in transition (a transition that seems to never end) . They point to a plant in Campulung Muscel : ARO but a whole industry was sabotaged so it can be any plant in Romania that did'nt survive the transition after all.It is so real that I can relate all that is happening in the movie to the plant where I used to work , when George and Manuela are on the roof of the plant I thought that the location is the same with the plant I used to work (sectia FIAT/T38 Motor). Well what do you want ? Nostalgia.I know how is to work in a plant from my own experience , yes people are like that the way they are depicted in this movie. Bravo ! Well done , Tudor Giurgiu !
