Doua lozuri
(1957)

He won. Or maybe not.
This is the story of a man who wins the lottery. Lefter Popescu (name meaning Poor Popescu), a stressed man (kinda like Michael Douglas in Falling Down), buys two tickets for the two lotteries. He puts them in a coat. The coat gets lots. The results are announced and he realized he might have won the lottery. He recovers the coat with trouble and he goes to cash his prize. At the bank, he find out he has the right numbers, but for the wrong lottery. In other words, he did not win. Quitting his previously job, he has nothing left. He goes nuts. The masterpiece scene of the movie is him, middle-aged, calm, clergy type, hanging from a chandelier at the bank.

A Lost Letter is the story of love and politics mixed together. Zoe Trahanache loses a love letter addressed to her lover, a subordinate of her husband, the letter ends up in the hands on Catavencu, a political enemy that intends to blackmail her for political advantages.

Vizita
(1952)

a visit with surprises
This is the story of a visit. A very unusual visit. A man, a woman and her son. The son is the centerpiece of the story. He is the spice and suger, he pours jam in the man's shoes and shows every aspect of bad manners and bad parenting that ever could be. Another masterpiece of Caragiale.

pretty much like "dr strangelove" by kubrik but only funnier. it's worth seeing
