#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Bucharest 1959. A spectacular Bank heist has the country in an uproar. In post-war Communist Romania it is an unimaginable slap in the face to the iron fisted authorities. Four men and a woman are arrested, tried, convicted and while waiting for their execution… are forced to star in a propaganda film about the crime. All five protagonists were heroes of the resistance during the Second World War and highly placed members of Romanian society. They clearly knew they would be caught and executed.
Plot: A Romanian police officer teams up with a small crew of bank robbers to pull off a heist by convincing everyone at the scene of the crime that they are only filming a movie.

Romanian director wins BIG
I was so completely entertained by this little film. I understand the historical data is highly accurate and appropriate for the Romanians that have lived in that exact period – which I respect so much . The amazing cinematography traps you along with power-house performances from Farmiga and Strong, the story is simply amazing and unique ( i think we all crave for unique stories nowadays). Caranfil’s directing took me by surprise because I have never expected this level of craft from a director also trapped in a country where films at this scale are only a dream. I loved every single one of the shots and the editing was also amazing. I really hope Caranfil will make more movies like this – keeping the amazing dark, funny and artistic tone. ( See The Rest is Silence – it maintains that unique blend of tones ). One of the best non- American films i’ve seen in the last couple of years.

Missing Moonshot!
Just a very odd movie! A sometime film, within a film, based on true circumstances, but feeling very artificial and contrived. Closer to the Moon is a Romanian production with a Romanian director helming a cast of mainly British and American actors who speak English. Many of the scenes are filmed indoors which almost begs the question of why locate the production in Romania anyway. The answer probably is tax breaks, but as I said earlier, this alone serves to heighten the unnaturalness of this admittedly deliberately absurdist take on historical events.

The actual events really do sound crazily sad with 5 Jewish mid-level Romanian communists deliberately concocting a fiasco of a bank robbery in 1959 to protest the Soviet encouraged, anti-Semitic purges. After being caught and convicted they were forced to take part in a recreation of their “crime”, as a propaganda warning to others, who may be of a similar mindset.

Closer to the Moon has a certain comic dark element to it, without it ever really being particularly humorous. Similarly, it fails to even have pretentions to drama and/or suspense. We know what’s going to happen and all the many flashbacks and (sometimes confusing) flashbacks inside flashbacks serve to do is to delay what we know will be the inevitable. It’s for this reason too, that it is difficult to identify with any potential heroes, as heroes generally don’t engage in probable suicidal missions just for the fun of it, or to make a point, which is what we’re asked to do here. I’ve always been a fan of Vera Farmiga and versatile character actor Mark Strong, but they are just wasted here playing Romanian caricatures of later 1960’s American Yippie types.

For an improbably largely true story, we never really are convinced of the motives behind the actions of this tiny resistance cell. I feel a more authentic, persuasive argument may have been made by writer/director Nae Caranfil by at least filming in Romania with a largely Romanian cast. As it stands, Closer to the Moon suffers from a lack of narrative cohesion, which is only exacerbated by its very uneven dramatic and comedic tone.
