Light but good comedy for the hard stuff in life
5 March 2017 | by dragosuSee all my reviews

This movie was a really nice surprise, both as a change from the new Romanian cinema wave usual focused on the ugly face of the reality in a country trying to evolve from a legacy that still haunts us - for me as a Romanian that is depressing, although the movies are good (well the director is not "per se" part of this wave... but it's not far from it given the previous movies) and especially as content. What is actually a drama was delivered with a lot a humor and so many good gags and situational comedy that I've left the cinema lighthearted while thinking about the harsh truth behind the story... well done! It really made my day. And I'm not the only one - I've seen the movie with a friend that went through a divorce and still the laughter was there! And the adjective to describe was "splendid" (yes, the surprise of getting something much better than expected played a role :), but that was just a tiny bit)

The movie is focused on relationships - and the story is evergreen... now or in 50 years, it will have the same impact. It's not maybe a movie you will say it's in your top 10 favorites, but once someone will mention it you will smile.

I was also very pleasantly surprised by the acting of the actors in the main roles - to be honest, most of them were new to me. But.... "mission accomplished" :) not Oscar nominations, but well done!

The only thing I didn't liked was how long musical at the end of it was... But I don't like musicals! So you might actually enjoy it

Bref, if you want to have a good laughter while thinking about something of substance that resonates with your experiences, this is a good choice. It will make your day a bit brighter. Good job Nae Caramfil!
