‘Two Lottery Tickets’ review: A fun comedy from Romania

What is New Wave?

Two Lottery Tickets is a Romanian comedy that puts a playful spin on winning the lottery. Dinel, Sile, and Pompiliu are three friends who have won six million euros. The only problem? The winning ticket has been stolen. 

The premise does not promise much. There are sure to be some misunderstandings and hijinks, but Two Lottery Tickets seems to be good for little more than a few chuckles. As it turns out, the little film provides a great time.

Due to its simple script, Two Lottery Tickets is forced to rely on its three leads. As the plot crosses into different sub genres of comedy, things remain consistently funny. The many supporting characters they meet are given little, if any development, however.

'Two Lottery Tickets' review: A fun comedy from Romania

Even though they are not nuanced, each of the people they question is very distinctive. From clairvoyants to prostitutes, Two Lottery Tickets introduces a wide variety of fun people that will draw the audience in.

The film has a unique tone to it. The three friends desperately want to get back the winning lottery ticket. At the same time, Two Lottery Tickets patiently sets up each joke. As things move from one encounter to the next, there is a sketch comedy feel to things. It works nicely with subtle hints from previous segments leading to payoffs down the line. 

In the end, this is the best way to describe Two Lottery Tickets. It is a light comedy that flows smoothly. The film is filled with humor and charm. It is a story with tongue planted firmly in cheek and is needed bit of escapism.
