The Romanian Full Monty. Set against the background of Michael Jackson’s visit to Romania in 1992, the film tells the story of a small town confronting the realities of post-Communist life. Threatened with the closure of the local factory, the men who work there decide to buy it themselves. How to raise the money? By selling their sperm to a fertility clinic. A hilarious social satire filled with rueful insight into a recent historical transition.
