Bad, followed by awful, and finally pathetic
As a Romanian living abroad, I don't often get to see Romanian films, apart from the old pre-communism films they show on SBS or some comedies with actors of old, occasionally I come across a Romanian film on Mininova, however they are few and far apart. Imagine my surprise when I came across this title, which promised so much, but delivered so little.
From the very beginning I was wondering what is going on here? The plot wasn't evident until about half way, and the end was very predictable. It was only after watching the film that I found out it was a movie version of soap opera. It seems to be missing something from the beginning, which obviously requires the viewer to have watched the soap opera to have an idea of who is who and what is going on. Imagine Days of our lives the movie?
With better script writing, some better introductions of who the characters are and some better acting, this film could have been much better than it was What ruined it for me was the lack luster acting by most characters, all the actors were pretty, and if it wasn't for that, I would have stopped watching it after the first 15 minutes. After seeing so many other romantic movies made by Hollywood or Bollywood, this film is "B" grade at best.
I gave it 2 out of ten because of the pretty actors and the fact I got to see some of the Romanian country side. If you have nothing better to do, and the paint is already dry on your walls, then I recommend watching this movie.
