A few days in the life of an old guy living in rural Romania. Not a clever idea for a movie... to say it gently. No matter how good of an actor Victor Rebengiuc is, he simply can't make a good movie all by himself. This movie was doomed to fail from the start, the screenplay being the main cause. Yes I get that the action isn't so important, the characters and the father-son relationship being the focus, but you can still make things a little more interesting. Truth be told, it does have a few nice scenes... when Costache and Koji look at the pictures and when Costache gets drunk for example. Sadly though, these scenes don't make up for an overall boring movie. At least it has a somewhat conclusive ending, which is more than enough for a romanian movie.
