Metrobranding. A Love Story Between Men and Objects (2010)

Posted by Ştefan Alexandrescu on June 19, 2011

This is one of the best Romanian economic documentaries. It tells the story of a series of excellent products Romania used to produce during communism. Romania was exporting tennis shoes, bycicles, mattresses,  lightbulbs, motorcycles, and great other products which, compared to the present day product, are way better. This is the story of how consumerism destroyed a great production which would have made Romania competitive on the worldwide markets. As Romanian, I feld deep sorrow watching this documentary. It is a definitely must see, to understand communism, consumerism and Romanian history and culture.

The documentary offers a very natural and creative approach, solidly investigated which make you understand both the economic perspective and the historic perspective.You may watch it and take notes about how to make a proper documentary on a complex issue, even with low budget.

My rating: 9 / 10. A perfect documentary.

Enjoy watching it! See it in Romanian cinemas if it’s still available.
