Storyline

Three heavy boozers - a Romanian (Horatiu Malaele), a Russian (Igor Caras-Romanov) and a Bulgarian (Mihai Gruia Sandu) - are tripling away their... happiness, into vodka, at "The Happy Immigrant", a joint kept by a Turk. The fauna of this venue is made up out of the Babel Tower's survivors: immigrants who had chosen Romania, as a country where everything is possible. The predictions included... A police raid chases away the pub's barflies. The three professional boozers stop from running just in front of a fortune teller expert in a niche field: death prediction. The rest is entertainment! Although we are all indebted to one death, some refuse to pay this debt. They don't want to die when it was written for them. Or just predicted... Written by Adrian Lustig

The imdb score is complete murder compared to the actual quality of the film
21 March 2019 | by ionu_791See all my reviews

This is a bland, tasteless, uninspired, cliche and infuriating movie. When you think it can't surprise you anymore it hits you with the most cringe acting and melodrama you'll see in a while. Completely uninspired work, out of focus (literally and metaphorically), overall bleak and the sadness displayed couldn't even stir some pity inside of me, it just went through with how fabricated and fake it felt. There's nothing to learn here other that not the most talented people get to be in the spotlight. Viewing it from this perspective can be inspiring.
