A film shot just to be shot
23 September 2018 | by waywardrouteSee all my reviews

Besides the controversy regarding Woody Allen, he is probably the only director who can make a movie about nothing and still have value.

" Povestea " is a movie about nothing, with no goal, no impact and many time, with bad lines spoken in the most artificial way. That would have not be a problem, if it was consistent of it's overall style. Whimsical until the end. But the movie is confusing and volatile. And boring. For each good scene, there is an equally bad one. For each smart and funny line there is an equally bad written line. Too bad for the cinematography, that does a very honourable job.

I have lots of patience. But I've spend half this movie checking facebook and whatsup, this is how interesting and captivating it was.

I suggest you wait for it to be available in some online platform, rather than pay a ticket in the cinema.
