Nunta mută

Horațiu Mălăele Romania, 2008

dionysus67's rating of the film Silent Wedding

Even if every cliché is summoned (the village characters, the agents of saintly irrationalism) and even if the film form is more often than expected gross and superficial (terrible slapstick and baldly Kusturicaesque), the film attains moments of poignancy, capturing the Balkan bacchanalian frenzy both as defiance and hubris. In this sense its dialectics of laughter is admirable and Meda Victor compensates for flaws.
