Nunta mută

Horațiu Mălăele Romania, 2008

Stefan Drees's rating of the film Silent Wedding

I think Mălăele's movie is too indecisive. The fluctuation between comedy, drama, ghost story, slapstick, pantomime and nostalgic glorification of village life doesn't work out in the end. In charging everything with symbolism he forgets to give his figures some flesh and blood and creates simple caricatures instead.
