Filmography:A Month in Thailand ('12)


Three hapless fools go in search of certain treasure in this shaggy and delightful comedy. Dinel is an auto mechanic who yearns to make enough money to convince his Italian wife to abandon her home country (and perhaps the man she’s fallen in love with) and join him in Bucharest. Sile is a gambling addict and Pompiliu is a cautious man who’s done virtually nothing with his life other than count the other two as friends. When they drunkenly buy a lottery ticket with a collection of lucky numbers they’ve culled from nowhere, they’re stunned at first to find it’s actually a winner… but even more stunned when the fanny pack they tucked it into goes missing. Thus begins an adventure that seems to have come from the mind of Samuel Beckett, circling our heroes around and around in the desperate hopes that they’ll find the ticket. As one asks, “Have we been here already?”
