  1. Sprungler's rating of the film Closer to the Moon

    An atmospheric reconstruction of a case long forgotten. What a shame that the film's diegess is too westernized and imaginary in comparison to the actual events. I would recommend paying attention on the philosophy behind their reasons, somehow similar to the one from Rope (1948).

  2. Joyce's rating of the film Closer to the Moon

    The historical background is fascinating. I didn't have basic knowledge about Communist Romania before this. I liked the humor and the cast is great. I really like this bunch of characters actually. Also, best bank robbery everrr.

  5. msmichel's rating of the film Closer to the Moon

    MWFF '14 Old fashioned Europudding picture that feels like it could have been made thirty or forty years ago and had the exact same results. Not terrible by any stretch just stagnant. A group of Jewish former party members in '59 Romania make a grand gesture of a bank robbery and are forced to re-enact their actions for the cameras before facing execution. Performances are fine in this passable time filler.
