Two Lottery Tickets
Director: Paul Negoescu Run Time: 86 min. Rating: Not Rated
The next generation of Romanian filmmaking talent finally arrives in the U.S. with Paul Negoescu and Two Lottery Tickets. A buddy comedy produced on a shoestring budget, starring three of the most recognizable faces in Romanian movies, Two Lottery Tickets suggests Pineapple Expressby way of Abbas Kiarostami. A winsome, riotous comedy of errors, Negoescu’s second feature is an audience-friendly social satire which merges a stoner’s shaggy-dog story with the sophisticated, intensely realistic style that has made the Romania cinema one of the most popular national film movements in the world.
“Negoescu… gives the film fresh zest with droll observations and pitifully endearing characters – all while poking meta fun at the austere Romanian New Wave movement he works within, and works to dismantle.” ~ Kristen Yoonsoo Kim
