actors saving a mediocre script. a moral lesson by Comunist regime. the wooden language, crisis of fake philosophy, cold dialogues, an error who defines characters and social relations. nothing new in the cinematography of the period. but useful for understand the rules of ideological command. the isles of humor, the carting competition , the science of Amza Pellea to use crumbs of script to build a credible character, the role of Radu Beligan who seems be almost hilarious strange force shirt, the effort of actors to give life to a story who seems full of non sense are few pieces who save Tată de Duminică. sure, not enough. but nothing is perfect and the desire to ignore that could be exactly this film.
