    • Synopsis
    • Somewhere east of Bucharest, two heroes share their moments of revolutionary glory on local TV, to celebrate the revolution that ousted Romanian dictator Ceausescu 16 years ago. But phone-in viewers claim that the “heroes” were drinking in the bar that day or making Christmas preparations rather than rebelling in the streets.
      “buoyant little comedy, in the best tradition of East European humor, savvy but concrete, gentle but sharp as a knife. (…) Hilarious” Dehorah Young, Variety
      “mordant Balkan wit” A.O. Scott, The New York Times
