to me,this is a film about social roles. not about individualities,about 'retrograde' spirituality,but about zigzagging through people,accomplishing the romanian ideal of the man who can do well in any situation,while staying at the surface of the things, in full control, unflinching, know-it-all jukebox.incertitudes are 4 losers, 'rock' is dee music, obesity is sexy and grapefruit juice compulsory.dubiously pedantic
very accurate portrait of the nouveau-riche-sort-of-capitalist-but-mostly-just-post-communist romanian man and the state of "affairs". or should i call it the status quo?! paraphrasing groucho marx for an attampted sum up: "if you don't like my principles, that's ok, i have other ways: i.e. a good beating".
