excellent film
8 October 2006 | by nzsofikaSee all my reviews

This film is one of the best Romanian films I have ever seen. And i have seen it not once! It is a film with lot of suspense and sarcastic humor. The story is so real, mostly for those who have the experience of the era shown in the film. Life of the people before 1989 was exactly alike of the film characters' life: full with fears, uncertainties. For foreigners it may be a bit strange why people react in such a way to the events, but that was the reality. The idea to present the story in three different point of views is brilliant, as you understand the events only at the very end, when all versions of the events are presented.
