Inspired from theatrical texts of writer Ion Luca Caragiale (a sharp observer of turn-of-the-century bourgeois mores), Lucian Pintilie sets his film in the ramshackle squalor of the suburbs, as a burlesque comedy of errors where two cuckolded lovers aim to avenge their broken hearts. With a star-studded cast and unimaginable directorial force, Pintilie’s raw depiction of society and reality’s histerical theatricality was immediately banned, seen only after the 1989 revolution.
