“Scrappy but at times uproarious…a crowd-pleaser.” — Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter

Three acclaimed actors of the contemporary Romanian cinema take a refreshing detour into goofball comic territory with this funny tale of small-town bumpkins who lose their winning lottery ticket just as fate promises to drop a fortune into their laps. Dinel (Boguţă of THE DEATH OF MR. LAZARESCU), Sile (Bucur of POLICE, ADJECTIVE), and Pompiliu (Papadopol of TALES FROM THE GOLDEN AGE) stop crying in their beer at the local watering hole long enough to pitch in on one lottery ticket. A few days later it’s the winner, but the fanny pack with the ticket stub has been stolen, precipitating a manic search that brings the inept trio up against gangsters, hookers, clueless kids, and a psychic. In Romanian with English subtitles. Courtesy of Heretic Outreach. DCP digital. (BS)
