just disappointing
30 July 2017 | by doru-diacSee all my reviews

a chain of vapid banalities and too underlined common aspects of everyday post- communism Romanian life thrown in in order to give some kind of authenticity. It lacks editing, character building, a interesting story to the script and a filming approach that goes with the message it tries to send (if any). Although I'm a big fan of Romanian cinematography which is frequently surprising, I had to force myself through the first painful long hour and after I gave up. I found neither humour, drama or emotions. Disappointing.
