I don't think enough people have watched this film. The Moromete Family is a great piece of Romanian cinema, and just a great piece of cinema.
Centering around a family living Romania, during World War II, as they deal with problems of living in that time. Such as, having trouble paying taxes, trying to get their kids and school, and the war environment. One of the best written films I've ever watched. This film really understands how to write human interactions. The family in the film, feel like a real family going through hard times.
The characters in this film, are all relatable and interesting. As they feel just like real people. Everyone acts and talks like real people their age.
The Visual Style:
This is a great looking movie. The black and white astetic allows the film to feel more like the time period, and also let's the film look more dark and depressing as a whole.
As a conclusion, this film is true masterpiece, and deserving of more attention. However, considering the few people that reviewed this film gave it a 8.9 rating, I am not alone.
