  • 5 stars "The movie will get under your skin. For those who can relate to the dysfunctional Romanian society it will also trigger a stomach uneasy feeling. The stress is so real and contagious you will need a few shots after the movie. You might also congratulate yourself for leaving the mioritical moral mud . Mr. Mungiu created a great snapshot of the complicated survival life in the forever in transit Romania. Good job! Great movie, again. We can indeed only hope for the best. However, we know that hope dies last and was also in Pandora's box."
