A good laugh!
16 October 2013 | by Tudor_ASee all my reviews

Of all the "Titanic Vals" adaptations, this one is my favourite.

Even though it's older than the one with Dem Rădulescu, and the video quality is a bit lower (black and white etc..), it is very well done. Even from the beginning, when the characters are being presented, the movie shows a lot of originality.

The cast is very well chosen. The humble role of Spirache Necșulescu is exceptionally well portrayed by Birlic, with his big, puppy-eyed expression. All the scenes containing Chiriachița and Dacia (the mother-in-law and the wife) are so funny, I had to watch them hundreds of times and they still managed to make me laugh out loud.

The movie deserves a 10!
