Alexandru Solomon – Kapitalism – Reteta noastra secreta AKA Kapitalism – Our Improved Formula [+Extras] (2010)
Solomon invites Ceausescu to revisit Romania, 20 years after he has been executed. The dictator haunts present-day capitalist society, emerged in the Wild East and often deeply rooted in its communist past.
The film offers incredible access to top magnates – at home, in their offices and in their minds – building a bitter-sweet portrait of a new ruling class.
Capitalism with a K – an Eastern European cocktail of power and money.
This is now part of Greater Europe.
Here’s the idea of what this movie is about. A documentary created by Alexandru Solomon, Kapitalism is a look at the drastic changes that have occurred throughout Romania since the collapse of communism in Europe. The film is portrayed in an entertaining way, by resurrecting Ceausescu so he can have a “look” at how Romania has changed and how capitalism and westernization plays a part in this change. The film features portraits of some wealthy Romanians. You’ll see Gigi Becali, George Copos, OTV television owner Dan Diaconescu, and Dinu Patriciu. This movie is a definite “must see” especially for us westerners who wish to see how “our” culture is rapidly assimilated in to other cultures in a “surreal” fashion.
