Marian Crisan makes his feature directing debut with a cute comedy in what might be called the "New Romanian" mold, developing deadpan humor through keenly observed boredom. A frumpy, small-town security guard, lacking anything better to do, shelters an illegal immigrant, and they become good friends despite the fact that neither man speaks the other's language (as it turns out, they both enjoy watching soccer). This lacks the dark undertones of other recent Romanian comedies (Police, Adjective; The Happiest Girl in the World) but includes some pointed jokes about the absurdity of borders in our globalized culture. The pratfalls are pretty funny too. In subtitled Romanian and Hungarian and unsubtitled Turkish.
