Trivia

The film starts with the interview taken to a local Gypsy woman who tells us about the girl of a certain Stanescu Ioan, from a village near Sebes Alba, who fell in love and eloped with a Gypsy "of a different race than hers". She was a tinker Gypsy, he was a Nomad. Stanescu Ioan's nickname? He was referred to as "Garlic". Never before have any of us witnessed a more shocking, hair-raising coincidence. See more »

A departure Smart with humor, place, and delivery throughout
20 July 2014 | by John DeFaroSee all my reviews

Lucky as I attended a private screening of this movie recently in Miami. Little did I expect as I could only think of how my first experience with foreign films was much about being nice with story telling. Not only did a nice delivery win my hard to get editing thumbs up but casting characters via the locale and relevance of each role made for a very strong and smart silliness for enjoying this movie. The mix of minds and words all within the story line delivered far past those jaded minded lookers minds for the pure fun of it all. Simple messages in life are delivered as most relevant and at the right time. Think Babette's Feast.
