One Step Behind the Seraphim 2017
2h 30min | Drama | 22 September 2017 (Romania)
A group of freshmen in an orthodox college are introduced in a world of cons, pleasure and money, but they soon discover that’s not the way one’s life should be lead.
I came back home a few hours ago from the cinema where I saw this movie and I still think about it. It made me write my first review so please don’t be harsh. This was for sure the most interesting movie made in Romania (by far) – and I tried to watch them all! I had a lot of fun, the crowd reacted so good at this movie, it was for the first time when I felt like home at the cinema! The story shows the truth behind what can happen in a Priests school in a very intelligent and funny way. In some of the situations I even saw myself in high- school skipping school and run to the billiard club, all the smoking and experience sex from the first time. So many things happen in this movie that I even wish for a sequel or even a TV series based on this story. The performance of the young actors (and not only) from this movie was VERY credible. I recommend all of u who question themselves if this one worth to be seen to go and watch it and then, if they don’t feel the same like me to answer this review ? I can’t understand why I didn’t saw advertising true the city about this movie, it’s absolutely brilliant – other movies have huge advertising campaigns, but don’t even worth the drive to the cinema.
