Really excellent!!!
31 May 2018 | by sorinbaiasuSee all my reviews

While watching it, I had the same impression as I heard some other viewers had too: why is this movie not yet a revelation for more people? I think I have an answer, but this is not what is important. The film is captivating and very emotional. Based on actual tragic events, it is a great and quite accurate reflection on the Romanian society and combines the action, comedy, drama, love story and documentary genres. Highly recommended!
