Did You Know?


In the beginning, the two children play around as Luke Skywalker and Jack Sparrow on the ruins of the Treznea manor, the scene of atrocious ethnic killing in WWII. This spot was chosen for its picturesque scenery and the blood story of intolerance behind it. Fortunately, the past is but a ruin and the world has grown more tolerant today. See more »

A Wonderful Comedic Story of Romeo & Juliet from the View of His Brother
21 August 2014 | by sobephotoSee all my reviews

Even for one who speaks no Romanian, the subtitles often seem superfluous. The impressive acting and wonderful direction convey meaning without the need for spoken words. Who am I to write a review; just a fellow photographer lucky enough to have been invited to a screening. What is "Garlic?" - Nothing more than a timeless "Romeo and Juliet" written into a modern setting yet addressing age old problems in the language of two naïve but intuitive preteen boys. It is a tragedy reinvented as a comedy through the antics of the younger brother and his best friend. Not since Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn has the camaraderie of two boys from disparate backgrounds in a small community represented a microcosm of contemporary society. The boys' perception of the "irrational" adult world leads them to find a solution to their problem that may seem funny yet is completely logical in a Lewis Carroll sort of way; sending them on the way in their "cross-country" adventures and on to new discoveries which add a surprise twist to the plot. The story is presented in a novel way which can only be described as a docucomedy as in docudrama with a comedic twist.
