Romania, 1953. Mara and Iancu are about to get married. Everyone in their village is helping with the wedding preparations and the celebrations have already begun. While the party is in full swing in the garden, the mayor and the regimental commander of the army interrupt to announce the death of Stalin. One week of national mourning must take place, effective immediately. The wedding and the party are forbidden.
In spite of this disruption, the couple and their guests come up with an ingenious but dangerous solution to continue their festivities...
“..a masterful sequence of silent comic drama”, Hilary Harper - ABC Australia
“Morally simplistic but highly accessible, with its ingenious "silent wedding" centrepiece…” Variety
“The goofy and the grim in a single polished package.” Peter Calder – NZ Herald
“A little charmer with an edge of darkness, this is a wonderful find for lucky gamblers who prefer the risk of chance in their film diaries. See it soon or the loss is yours!” Nick Paris – Otago Star
