I almost cried while watching this movie in Bucharest. It was a Saturday and went to the French Institute with two of my best friends to watch it. We were actually the only viewers of this Depardon movie (who seems to be unknown in Romania). After the projection we crossed the whole town for about two hours discussing "La Vie moderne".
