Trivia

Critic`s opinion
“We also played a part in the Revolution, the best way we could!” The foreign audiences received the film as a comedy, while we bit our lips not to cry. Please don`t misunderstand that the foreign people`s verdict is stupid – as a comedy, 12:08 East of Bucharest is a small piece of jewelry, while as a bitter satire, it easily and firmly claims the status of a masterpiece.” (Andrei Creţulescu)
