Forget "La La Land," the best musical comedy is here.
26 April 2018 | by Marius_StanSee all my reviews

An earthquake of laughter of 6.9 degrees magnitude (on the Richter Scale) has been triggered by Nae Caranfil's comedic family drama. Never thought that I would be laughing at nightmares but art inspires in mysterious ways. One of the rare box-office successes in the recent Romanian cinematography, the movie has it all: uplifting storyline (boy finally realizes that he loves girl), inspired directing, a plethora of diverse characters, and a talented cast - with a plus for Lurentiu Branescu's singing, Maria Simona Arsu's versatility, and Teodor Corban's uncanny lying abilities. This is a movie about how little we appreciate those who temporarily occupy our homes and our lives. While enjoying the cascade of pranks and witty dialogues, pay attention to the family drama running in the background and ask yourself: Does my relationship have a red bullet? If it does, invite your dear one to "6.9 on the Richter Scale." It will rock your world in more ways than you think.
