Went to the premiere last night. For that, I have to thank my Screenwriting teacher, Mr Nic. He was the one with the invites. Later that evening, I found out that Alex Maftei, the movie's director, was his student at UNATC.
I liked it. A lot. I had no expectations. ok, that's more of a lie. I had one expectation, regarding the images. I expected them to be really good looking. And they were.
It was a very good looking movie. It was like discovering that someone is as pretty as it is smart. And funny, for that matter.
I enjoyed the sense of humor. It had sarcasm and it had youth. It was alive. There were people laughing their hurts out around me. I didn't, I admit. But that's because I take humor somehow differently: I see deep when there is funny. I take pleasure in discovering the under layers.
Maybe there weren't any in here. But I saw them anyhow. And enjoyed them a lot. I can not speak of this movie in terms of 'for a Romanian movie, it was...'. No. Because it was a good movie. No matter the origins.
It had lines, good ones and memorable lines, it had great image production and very good direction. It could be any city and I like that. It could be any family and I like that too. The actors' performance was a delight and the music, perfectly fine to my ears.
I experienced tears at the end. Don't know why.
I went out into the snow and drove home in/on my own two feet, laughing. I bought my first flowertoalover and HappyMealed form Mc a Star Wars sword.
Now I want the stage. And a better dressed environment for the premieres.
