'California Dreamin' rich in character

California Dreamin’

Director: Cristian Nemescu

Cast: Jamie Elman, Armand Assante, Razvan Vasilescu

Cert: 15

A highly entertaining tale – really a culture clash – involving a group of American soldiers whose train ride to Kosovo in the late l990s is halted in Romania by locals plotting to grab some valuable cargo.

While the Americans languish in the middle of nowhere various lives are changed by romance, rivalry, red-tape and boredom.

It’s a story rich in character and terrific playing by a wonderful cast who enter into the spirit of a well constructed piece.

Star Rating: 4/5.
