Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Gheorghe: My country is dead. You can't throw
a rock in most towns without hitting an old lady
crying for her children who have gone.
I don't think that the character of Gheorghe only exists in order to make the character of Johnny (Josh O'Connor) realize what a whiny little bitch he's being about his own emotional miseries -- I think Gheorghe is much more complicated than just being a stock "person of color showing whitey the light" -- but I do appreciate those moments where he does shut Johnny up with something like the above quote. We all need to shut up our whining some of the time. Especially if there's somebody as drop-dead gorg as Alec Secareanu in a red sweater (and nothing else) sitting across from us. Live in the moment, dude! Speaking of, a happy 34 to Secareanu today...
