      Legacy, always a classic

      The ending song is the classic "California Dreaming".... A tribute to the late director of the film. Cristian Nemescu. Without the director's editing, we just watched a 155-minute feature film, not boring, but a little regretful and a little lost. How should I put it? Although this film also describes the story of the Yugoslavia from the side, just like "Heavy Rain is Coming", but this film is of a different style. During the genocide in Kosovo, it described a story in Malaysia. This film...

      familiar feeling

      A runaway girl's heart falls in love with a soldier who suddenly breaks into a peaceful village.
      What a familiar Romanian version of Peacock.
      While biting on the hegemony of the United States, sometimes satirizing Clinton, while
      exposing himself to the Eastern Europeans, the government is corrupt and bureaucratic, and the people are ignorant

      . "Monica and David" is such a youthful romantic love story
      . Although the rhythm of this section is slow (stuffy), it...

      a little irritable

      The plot is relatively slow, but it is more in line with the theme to be expressed and unfolds slowly. Those expectations and inexplicable disgust belong to different experiences, right? Who would dislike a blow that was not imposed on them? But when the dream of anticipation begins to fight back against me, the anticipation is shattered together with the dream, how disgusted I am for my ignorance, how can I know whether the dazzling fireworks sprinkled in the sky are regrets of tears and...

      best film 2007 and best romania film since 89'

      pure damn good! I'm really lucky. After watching the movie for more than a year, I finally decided to watch some movies in a limited way and I saw this movie.

      Through this movie, I saw a lovely director who loves his motherland and people. It's not the California dream, but the director's own dream of becoming a Romanian country.
      Unfortunately, the unfortunate early death of the director is a big loss for Romanian movies.

      This movie expresses quite a lot of content,...

      It's great here in California

      In 1983, the homeless Travis finally returned to his younger brother's house in Los Angeles, and soon he took his son to Houston to find his wife, to find the memory of Paris, Texas, and to find the American dream of director Wim Wenders. In the end, except for an outstanding "Paris, Texas", the dream was not found, and Wenders only cared about the process of searching for the dream; in 1994, the police number 223 outside Chungking Mansions in Hong Kong met again and just came back from...

      What a crap movie. I read the profile and thought it would be good. Talk about the failure and irresponsibility of US diplomacy. The plot went on and on, and I was completely taken aback. The theme doesn't stand out at all, and I have absolutely no idea what some of the snippets do. It's okay to edit, and it doesn't feel...
