\’….Lead actor Dumitrache has honed his craft to perfection to play Doru, a man whose bottled-up desperation will soon explode, and, when the dust settles, will become a symbol for millions of Eastern Europeans seen as a cheap labour force in their adoptive country and as mere visitors, as those who left, in their native country. It is here where Doru becomes endearing and wins our hearts.\’
