presented with the same dose of masochism who defines contemporary Romanian cinema. because, after two half decades of dictatorship, the young directors have two ideals - the exorcism of the past and the international prizes/recognition." Eu cînd vreau să fluier, fluier" is one of good examples. far to be bad, using two admirable young actors - Ada Condeescu and George Pistereanu, the film is fresco of a gray society , tensions of an age, lost of sense, dark sides of everyday life. and a story of love. who reminds Terminus Paradis. the only problem is the reaction as viewer about it. because, in many cases, the artistic virtues are covered by the versions of the same theme, a form of self hate and frustrations, the character of the young Pistereanu representing incarnation of a state of feelings more than reactions of an angry teenager. so, a bitter film . like too many others. or, only, a strange love story. the verdict is profound personal for the each viewer.
