This film came as a real surprise. Though the ending is perhaps a tad predictable, it is made up for by the superb performances from lead actress Maria Dinulescu and lead actor Jonathan Ahmadi. The script is focused and engaging and there are some fantastic shots of Bucharest and surrounding environs. Recommended.
