The director of 4 Months 3 Weeks and 2 Days has steered this project: five tales from the last fifteen years of Romania under Ceausescu, with separate directors (including Mungui himself) and a common theme of absurdism and light comedy. Each is based on an urban legend of the era, from the policeman and his wife who have to kill a pig without waking the neighbours, to the village preparing itself for the visit of the party functionary who never comes. 'Another notch in the country’s film-making renaissance which focuses on day-to-day life under the dictatorship to warm and often hilarious effect.' (Mike Goodridge, Screen Daily)
