Why Are the Bells Ringing, Mitica? (1981)

De ce trag clopotele, Mitică? (1981)

140 min. - Comedie Dramă - PG - 29.10.1990


Synopsis: Inspired by the play „D'ale Carnavalului” („Carnival Scenes”) and by other writings of I.L. Caragiale. A small world of bourgeois intrigues and frivolities lived with intensity by its own protagonists: Pampon's lover, Didina is in love with the barber Nae, who is Mitza's lover, while she is Cracanel's lover. One letter starts the ball rolling and ugly characters start revealing themselves in a burlesque-like fashion.
