Since I kept hearing it was pretty good, I was rather curious to watch this flick. Eventually, even though it was indeed an interesting feature, I was actually rather disappointed. I mean, the main issue in my opinion is that the story took like forever to start up and they took too much time to present the characters. Basically, the running time is about 90 minutes and 60 minutes of it was just s... read more

This movie tries to answer the question if there has been - or not - the revolution against Ceausescu in a small town in Romania, in 1989. A very amateur television programme surveys about this issue, but the truth is hard to come out.. Very slow in the first part, the movie grows up after the beginning of the TV programme, which is half of the whole film. Some funny characters and situation, but ... read more

“This movie tries to answer the question if there has been - or not - the revolution against Ceausescu in a small town in Romania, in 1989. A very amateur television programme surveys about this issue, but the truth is hard to come out.. Very slow in the first part, the movie grows up after the beginning of the TV programme, which is half of the whole film. Some funny characters and situation, but also deep meaning about the past and current situation. The last 5 minutes, including the last conversation, are the best of all the movie.” read more

Basically, the running time is about 90 minutes and 60 minutes of it was just set-up and, as a result, it was just very slow and not very captivating. Eventually, towards the end, I finally understood what the goal of this movie was and the last 30 minutes were much better and captivating but the damage was already done and it couldn't be recovered. When I read reviews saying that it is really hilarious, I tend to disagree. I mean, maybe I didn’t get the humor, it was defi” read more
