Pintilie’s works in 90s always surprise me with his bold direction & mature insight into harsh reality of Romania. This movie which may be called “Mine Noir” has two adverse elements: abundant energy of people (that relation with heroin is like 70’s Italian erotic comedy) and ominous darkness in Iliescu era. But, oau, that enigmatically silly/sinister (or sillister?) ending made me speachless for a while. WTF?
