Funny and well done
20 January 2019 | by drunk-49446See all my reviews

A simple but still funny comedy with good lines, well written. What really got me was the beauty of the locations the used(somewhere near Resita), that and good filming and directing made it worth watching.

P.S- This is the first Romanian film on Netflix, hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.
