| A fine piece of entertainment
Although not nearly among the jewels of European, nor even Romanian cinematography, a satire comedy "Poker" is indeed an entertaining movie, not lacking in quality or good acting. I wouldn't precisely classify it as a satire, for obvious reasons that, although the theme of corrupt politicians, the almightiness of mafia and its close relation with politics is ever-present, and can be applied to most of Balkan countries today, it is not the dominating theme of the "Poker". Above all mentioned, it is a story of a friendship among four men spreading from their early childhood. As elderly, they are all powerful men of various jobs and professions, but what is really fascinating about them is the fact that their friendship and the passion for poker find the way to remain and they coexist in a somewhat silly manner that includes sharing a mistress and forgiving each others misdeeds. Therefore, "Poker" is more like a benevolent comedy than an actual satire, the dialogues are magnificent and the actors superb.
