| More than it seems
Indeed, this movie means a lot more than it seems to.

It is not only about a poor sanitary system. It is also about old age, loneliness, illness, about physical and mental degradation. It is about major as well as minor facts of life, about keeping the human feelings despite of hostile conditions. It is about obedience and dignity. It is about love and care. About bed luck, when it comes, about how to face it.

It is not a documentary; it is not a mass media investigation. It is an art movie, and if it was only about the sanitary system, such a gifted artist like Cristi Puiu shouldn't bother at all. Besides, you know, it is not only about what you say, it is a lot about how you say it. Just have a look and see a great screen play, a great director and great, great, great actors.
