Not a movie about the Church and that's good!
21 September 2017 | by razvancostache-1See all my reviews

First: Not a movie about The Church. It's a great story about coming of age in a very specific and harsh environment, friendship and finding yourself. Excellent movie that shifts the approach about such topics in the Romanian cinematography. It's good to see a movie that doe does not exploit in a dramatic way the status quo of the Romanian society in the last 30 years, but tries to tell a real story. The music and cast are on point and Daniel's style is omnipresent throughout the narrative.
