Romanian Movies?

Buna! I was wondering if you guys have seen any good Romanian Movies that I should watch? I haven't seen any movies in Romanian and was hoping you guys can give some suggestions. I feel like if I start watching some movies in Romanian it'll help me with my learning process.

I'm looking for movies that would be entertaining to watch, like comedies or action films. I heard of a comedy movie called, "Uncle Marin, the Billionaire" which is supposably in Romanian. I also heard a movie called, "Philanthropy" but I haven't seen it. Are these good movies and if you guys have any other suggestions please feel free to write them down!

I also am looking for movies that are in English but have Romanian dialogue. For instance, I was watching a movie called, "Spectral" and surprisingly enough the movie takes place in Moldova and there was some Romanian dialogue. (It's a good movie you guys should watch it) Another example is from the movie, "Captain America: Civil War", where a scene takes place in Romania and Sebastian Stan speaks a few words in Romanian.

You can even put movies with Romanian characters! Like if the actor plays a Romanian person or something. You can even put TV series in Romanian!

I hope you guys will enjoy writing down movies that you've seen that are good and professional! Thanks. :)

I don't know if I'll be able to recommend anything 'fun' like action movies or comedies, but I know of some cool stuff. Check out the Youtube channel "Cinepub", they have a lot of good quality full-length movies, documentaries, and short films. Basically all Romanian and Moldovan.

Some other movies I can recommend are:

Politist, Adjectiv; Eu Când Vreau să Fluier, Fluier; Dupa-Amiaza unui Torturier

And I'll second 4 Luni 3 Saptamani si 2 Zile and Moartea Domnului Lazarescu.

Also, the documentary "Children Underground" is super sad and horrifying but it's worth seeing, it's about orphaned children who lived (/live?) in the subway tunnels of Bucharest.

4 luni, 3 saptamâni si 2 zile (4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days), is a work of art. It is the most moving movie I ever saw and the only one I felt physically sick after. I can't remember so well but I remember that I enjoyed a quite unique movie called Moartea domnului Lãzãrescu (The Death of Mr. Lazarescu).

Watch "Tales From The Golden Age" :) You can buy it on Amazon and it has English subtitles, which is super nice for people learning a language when they come across a word they don't know.

It is essentially a comedy compilation of mini stories that take place in Romania circa 1980
