4.5 out of 10 Brilliant
Marilyn from Dublin, 07 Sep 2011
This dvd while obscure enough is fantastic entertainment. Each of the stories are well told and give an insight to a land and culture which is mostly ignored in modern cinema. The stories are both touching and funny. The spirit of humans and their ability to endeavour while adapting to their environment is wonderfully portrayed in 5 moderately bite sized chunks

3.5 out of 10 Very good little romanian film
Mark from Meath, 15 May 2010
Four or five stories of ordinary people struggling to get food or money under the Ceaucescu era (how to kill a pig in a flat?,how to get eggs for Easter from a locked truck? how to make money collecting glass bottles?) Very funny, full of burlesque situations, but also very interesting and touching. With subtitles but the romanian was lovely to hear.
