Stere Gulea is one from the "old school" directing. And the same as the other communist by products (Sergiu Nicolaescu pops into mind) he never directed a movie Kurosawa-wise. He is just another guy who had the luck and the relations to say he is a director. He might have been an engineer or a librarian as well. So he's playing director. And the scene is quite pathetic given his age. From the outside he might have designed a bridge - the quality would be the same.

The scripting spells failure. Unless this is just another advert of "drugs are bad; don't do drugs" this won't qualify as a script. The authors never bother to interact with the depicted world, or at least they know how to hide it well. Just another fairy tale after a drinking day.

The acting is at the same level as the directing. With the notable exception of the late Dinica they are all fakes and none can make the ridiculous characters live.

And all that effort to make a collage of what the director would call "western junkie movies". The extra star is for the tech team as the light and camera are doing a rather good job. Excellent given the team and the context of late '00 Romanian movies.
