The trip of Romanian brothers accompanying their father for the surgery to Germany, got interrupted by the 1968 events in Prague.
11 October 2017 | by elena-59681See all my reviews

I loved the film. The historical context is not precise, but does not have to be, its just a tool to illustrate that despite the social situation people may carry the problems within themselves. The same political system may raise different type of people... Or like Emil says: " They have everything, but do not enjoy it, I want to be at home to enjoy all these things..." Great acting, great music, beautiful photography, the movie justifies and praises the life as it is with its comic and sad sides.
