Perhaps "melodramatic" would be a better word here -- exaggerated plot/characters. It just seemed quite different from the cooler, more subtle things we were familiar with. It reminds me of what Westerners think of "Soviet realism" in visual art -- not the pro-communism element, but the too-literal portrayals. Dial it back already - we get it!

I find some parts of it charming and very creative and others truly misguided... I would like to see more. We see almost no Jacobson here and I would like to know more about him. I believe there was going to be a presentation a few years ago, amd then the visas didn't come through... Wasn't it going to be Cojocaru performing? Anyone remember?
